The Three C’s Of Innovative Thinking


In this chapter, we get down to business with an an actual formula to help you solve problems on a daily basis.  The Three C’s of Innovative Thinking was the result of nearly three years of analyzing the process, I instinctually used to solve problems.  It was difficult to identify because I just did it.  It’s like riding a bike?  After a while, you just do it.In the years of research, since I discovered this process, others have attempted to identify how the human brain thinks creatively.  What surprised me was the Ph.D.’s, scientists, and geniuses, who describe their process turns out to be the same.  While the names of the individual components differ, the process works the same.

  1. Collect
  2. Calculate
  3. Communicate

Let’s break each one of these down and see how they work.

More to come!
