train yourself to see negativity as the seed for re-invention

Written by admin on . Posted in Stress

One way to un-trigger yourself is to form a habit of seeing negativity as the seed of new development. For example, crazy weather (and large chunks of Antarctica falling into the sea) may be seeding the environmental movement like never before. The overburdened health care system may be seeding the wellness movement. My monthly fuel cost is seeding my desire to walk more often.

Negativity can be the kick in the butt we all need to finally make a creative change. One way to un-trigger yourself is to form a habit of seeing negativity as the seed of new development.

Just remember as innovation expert Sir Ken Robinson says “In the coming decade creativity will be as important as literary.”

What many organizations do is to take something negative affecting their work or industry, and brainstorm on what reinvention it may be seeding.

For example, 9/11 caused the meetings industry to slow down significantly. As a result, some industry leaders brainstormed and decided to focus resources in other areas. Lo and behold great inroads were made into webinars and tele-seminars.

Paul Hawken, in his book Blessed Unrest, talks about a huge social and environmental movement afoot on a global scale today (and why no one saw it coming).
