“Become more conscious of the creative power within your reach

Alex Osborn

Osborn developed several rules for a good brainstorming session: encourage large quantities of ideas, include the outlandish unusual ideas, minimize judgment, and build on each idea.

In 1939 brainstorming methodology was solid but technology was still disconnected. Alex Osborn could have his secretary type up the groups’ ideas (as most real managers in 1939 didn’t type) and hand them out on a piece of paper to everyone.

Make Your 2014 Goals Achievable with TheBrain 8

January 8, 2014

“Visualization is one of the most powerful means of achieving personal goals.” goal230

-Harvey Mackay

See to Achieve

Plato refers to thinking as the talking of the soul with itself. Yet one of the problems we have with these “conversations” is their transient nature. Our greatest ideas and strong moments in life can be fleeting and overlooked in our daily routines. This can leave us in a bit of a rut: always busy with life but never accomplishing or following through on our long-term goals. But that’s where your digital Brain can help…

Use your Brain to connect all your key goals and objectives for 2014 together. You can even relate them to other ideas and categories for a complete view of your life.
