From IDEO: Escape Your Filter Bubble and Enhance Your Creativity

 

  • Talk to strangers – Bill Murray’s recommends conversations with cab drivers
  • Unfollow people like you – it will open your eyes to other perspectives
  • Join a different demographic – Bingo anyone?
  • Volunteer – It brings you eye to eye with people you don’t usually hang with (and it will make you feel good)

 

From Fast Company: Expunge these three phrases from the conversation:

 

  • Best Practices – By the time they’re ‘best’ they’re stale
  • Return on Investment – Yahoo turned down an offer to buy Google for $1M because it didn’t pencil out
  • “When I worked for …” – It’s so yesterday
