There’s something quite scary about fresh thinking. Exhilarating too.
But the scary bit is that it’s new, it’s different. It won’t be recognised immediately because there may not be anything to compare it with or to validate it by.
That’s the difference between the art of fresh thinking and the science of big data. Both are valid if we know why we’re doing them, but not if we confuse them.
So are you trying to justify something – to yourself or others – that can’t be handled in that way? The art of fresh thinking is a step of faith. And the world we’re in needs fresh solutions.
What difference could you make by the way you think and dream today?
