- It’s inspirational.
- It’s practical and simple.
That’s it. And this video is another example.
Acuff suggests that you and I don’t spend enough time cultivating ideas. As a leader, I am so focused on productivity that I don’t give myself time to imagine, to think, to be creative.
That is a detriment to my leadership.
In this video, Acuff suggests two simple ideas that can transform our ability to imagine.
- Feed ideas. We need to feed our mind if we are to feed the ideas that ultimately feed our organization. Read broadly. Watch interesting shows that make you think. Go to workshops and seminars. Listen to podcasts of people who think totally different than you. Feed your ideas.
- Make time for thinking. Our live are so full and so loud that great ideas can’t sneak up on us. That’s why we get great ideas in the shower. It’s the only place we’re not distracted. We need to find more shower moments in the rest of our week.
Question: How can you practically take Acuff’s ideas and make them a reality in your life?
