Innovation Picture of The Week: Sun From Another Galaxy
A star in the night sky.
No? Then, a sun belonging to another solar system?
No? Then, a sun surrounded by other, smaller stars?

What does this picture signify to you?
Does it give you the feeling of an oasis in the middle of a hot, arid desert (much like well-handled innovation is for an organization fighting for survival)? A new lease on life!!

Are the small yellow circles like ideas in your head? That revolve around a central theme but you are not really sure how and where they fit?
Do you have a problem in your mind and many alternate solutions? Take small pieces of paper (colored) equal to the number of solutions you have. Write down one solution on each piece of paper. Now, fold the paper pieces and hide them in and around your workspace / play area / bathroom. Whenever you visit the hiding place the next time (each paper piece has a different hiding place), take out the piece of paper that you first recall and read what it says. Now (although you must have done this already) think of how this will make it easier for you to solve the problem. similarly, when you are around the next time, take out another hidden paper and repeat for the remaining solutions. By the time you are finished, you'll know what you have to do.

Do you think better when you are moving? The orange sun in the picture conveys a sense of motion. When you are travelling, walking down to office, talking a morning stroll, sitting on a swing, dancing, exercising, walking the dog, basically whenever you are moving, observe how you think. Whenever you are most relaxed is the time when the probability of an idea occuring to you is the highest.

What does this picture remind you of?
