SuperKids Brain Food
One day a new product design team got into a really whacky mood and made fun of their product. They were zany and off-the-wall. The meeting was a great success, and many new ideas were generated. The next week, everybody was in a serious mood and no new ideas were generated. Moral: there's a close relationship between the "aha" of discovery and the "ha-ha" of humor, and being whacky stimulates your creative juices. As the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu put it, "As soon as you have made a thought, laugh at it." What crazy, zany things can you do with respect to your issue? What would that do? What can you take less seriously? What crazy, zany things would a disk jockey do to your problem? A choir director? A trash collector? A mystic? A barber? A butcher? A rocket scientist?
