The Winning Mindset For Creative Solutions Under Pressure

It's Time for Drone Delivery
The other day, I was sitting with a group of college students at Starbucks, we were discussing startup businesses. They were brainstorming of what type of business to start. A guy in an ice cream truck pulled up and the driver ran into Starbucks. I joked as he ran by, "don't you sell any coffee flavored ice cream?" Everyone laughed as did the driver as he briskly rushed the door open and ran in. "Maybe he is just using the restroom?" We all laughed again, and then saw him get pick-up his pre-made coffee he must have ordered with his smart phone Starbuck's app.

Brainstorming and Innovation - Not Really Working Anymore
Well, I have a pretty large personal library with more than 3 dozen books on innovation. It's amazing how they all read about the same and all have nearly the same advice, especially when it comes to the 'art of brainstorming'. Still, due to all the new social norms being taught in college these days, where every question asked of a professor, no matter how stupid, is met with; "Great question," and then followed by the nauseating improper English; "okay so... " followed by a regurgitated answer - it's causing the same nonsense in brainstorming sessions.

Corporate Innovation - What Happened?
In the real world outside of academia, we have the same problem where corporate employees are discouraged from thinking, trained to do things exactly as per the employee manual, BMPs (best management practices) of industry, or directions from their bosses, yet their bosses are doing the same thing? Is anyone - even the C-suite or board of directors thinking anymore? Are they busy copying marketing campaigns, business strategies, and processes of their competitors too - apparently so, which is fairly obvious reading trade journals and following industry associations.

Invention Submission Firms, Design Firms, and Patent Lawyers - Are They All a Rip-Off?
Watch most Inventor shows on TV and you will likely see people on the edge of disaster financially. You hear story after story of people that took out a second mortgage on their house, used every bit of savings they had, were living in their car and on the brink of bankruptcy. These were the ones that made it on camera. They had thousands of entrants and only a few made it as far as being televised. Just think if even ? of the people who auditioned and didn't get on T.V spent as much money as the ones you saw. The other thing you need to consider is that all of those that did not get on T.V. were looking for someone to produce their idea and get it to market.

Inventors, Here Are Reasons Why Your Invention Got Rejected
Many Inventors trying to bring their product ideas to market are totally crushed by rejection. So, I thought I would provide a list of some of the reasons you could have gotten rejected. It does not cover every reason you could get rejected, but hopefully it will give you something to think about. You need to realize that inventing is fundamentally a numbers game! Yes, you still need to have a good idea but you will find that no matter how good an idea you may think it is you can still get rejected. Many marketable ideas are rejected all the time. Even if it does not make sense to you that they would reject an idea that they agree would be profitable. Here are some common reasons why even marketable ideas are rejected.

I'm continually astounded by how short-sighted some leaders are. Let me tell you what I mean.

After we agreed on the details for the keynote program, I asked him, "What do you have on the agenda to help your team think more creatively?" (I have a great hands-on breakout session on this topic that I thought might be a good fit.)

I also discovered that there are many portmanteaus that we use on a daily basis, frequently without realizing that's what they are.
