Hi!

A post shared by πŸŒŸαœŠαœ’αœ†αœ“αœαœˆ,🌟 (@bituincallanta)

I once went to an exhibit where there were two paths you can take to look at Japanese cultural objects: through the lens of inspiration or through the lens of information. It makes you look at one object in different ways.

Hamifilm is a family favorite nowadays, replacing Frozen after 7 years at the top. At first, they were just enjoying the music and the choreography. Then I noticed that they started commenting on the backdrop and the blocking of the actors. We watched the Song Exploder episode where Lin-Manuel Miranda explained how he wrote: "Wait for It." They watched out for Angelica's flower brooch appearing and disappearing during "Satisfied." They ask different questions with every viewing.

Find out why you're attracted to your favorite painting. What makes it your favorite? Is it because it makes you feel something or because of how it was made?

Look at everyday objects and find another way of looking at them.

Let me know what you discover!

Cross-pollination is a common innovation strategy that anyone can apply in their lives. Even if you don't have a business, wouldn't it be nice to have a multi-disciplinary "team" i.e. friends who are from different fields?

❌Practice Failure | Shane Parrish | πŸ•° 3 minutes

When I started teaching, one of my mentors told me to also give the wrong answers to my students and have them figure out why it was wrong. Even if she meant it as a grade 4 math exercise, this can be applied to other things as well.
