Innovative Thinking – Relieve Stress Outside – Blog 088

When I ran my computer company, we would often take the day off and go hiking in the desert.  We were always surprised how many amazing ideas we got while walking and climbing.  It was a completely different environment, free from stress.  It was always a very creative place to be.

One day I was totally stressed out so, I got in my car and drove from Phoenix to Tucson where This Old House was filming an episode.  I always enjoyed the show, Norm, and the gang.  It turned out I had an amazing day on set and went home

Above is Norm Abram, Lon Safko (me), & Steve Thomas from “This Old House”.


“It was a beautiful little Theory, murdered by a gang of brutal Facts.”

Charles Lamb
