Starting from a blank canvas

Posted May 16, 2017 by Mathieu Chiasson

One of the great skill to learn in the 21st century is the ability to start from a blank canvas. Meaning, doing your own thinking. Every great innovations during the last 15 years were born from completely new ideas which disrupted the status quo.

Leaders of the 21st century are those with the ability to construct new ideas from emerging technologies and connections.

Make it a habit of exploring and developing your own ideas. Sure, look around for inspiration but start from a blank slate.

To practice your creativity, instead of reading blog posts of top 6 rules for happiness or 8 ways to lose weight. Make up your own lists. You'll be surprise to often end up with better lists than the ones you find on the web.
