June 2012 Newsletter
Here’s to the crazy ones…
Last month was Innovation Month.
It’s gone now, but that shouldn’t mean that we stop thinking about innovation and creative thinking. Set yourself time each week to think creatively and innovate. Even if that means picking up a coloured pen and sketching or doodling a mindmap or drawing of where you see yourself in 10 years time. What will you do be and have.
Have fun doing it, the importnat part is to DO IT!
Recently when preparing a presentation I revisited Steve Jobs life and times. So for June we will focus on the crazy ones.. who see things differently.. think differently.. think they can change the world.. and do.

New Thinking for your organisation- THINK DIFFERENT
Do you remember this advert?
Can you believe it was 15 years ago!
Think about how much has changed around us in that time?
How much have we changed in the same period of time?
I don’t mean the grey hairs creeping in or the laughter lines, I mean have we changed in attitude, our behaviours, our thinking.
Have we become more open thinking, or more close minded. Think about it.
Decide to make a change for the better. Change happens when you decide to change with your heart and mind, not when you are told to. So decide for yourself, take charge.
Now you see how fast paced our lives have become.
This one minute advert started with the phrase here’s to the crazy one’s….
Take one minute to watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oAB83Z1ydE
and be inspired: think about what you are going to change, to change our world!
If you want a further boost, take 15 minutes out of your life and watch and listen to Steve Jobs Stamford Commencement Speech: http://youtu.be/D1R-jKKp3NA
6.9million people have viewed it and I bet many were inspired to take action. You see, to have motivation or be motivated is one thing, but you need to take action, so you need momentum more than just motivation. Find something that ignites your passions, and pushes all your buttons making you want to keep going over any hurdles or obstacles that you come across.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” – Einstein.
So if in our businesses and organisations we are facing challenges (problems) then we need different thinking from the type which created them. Time to THINK DIFFERENT.
As we approach the new financial year, take time now to contact us and find out how our mental tools and techniques can be applied in your teams and departments to enable everyone to discover and apply methods to think different.
Have a Joyful June!
