We're in the midst of the holiday season and I've got hope on my mind. First, I put together Creating Hope, a collection of BIF Summit videos featuring some of our youngest storytellers telling their innovation stories, on the theory that our hopes for the future often rest with the young.

It's time for Disruptus!

Our dear friend and compatriot, @Renee_Hopkins came back from the World Innovation Forum last June with a big smile and the #Disruptus game in hand, which we first played in #innochat a week later. It was so fun we vowed to play Disruptus once each quarter. She led us through our quarterly Disruptus game in our Oct.

All I want for Christmas is...a new  mindset! Ah, but is it really that easy?! And just what is a mindset, anyway?

I came back from the World Innovation Forum last June with a big smile and the #Disruptus game, which we first played in #innochat a week later. It was so fun we vowed to play Disruptus once each quarter. I'm smiling again as I announce that it's time for our quarterly Disruptus game! We'll play in our Oct. 17 chat.

As usual, last week's World Innovation Forum (see tweets at #wifny) presented a smorgasboard of new ideas on innovation. One that struck me in particular was the focus on the concept of disruption not so much as an academic idea, as it originally appeared in Clayton Christensen's The Innovator's Dilemma, but as a fundamental concept of innovation that we should all master, and master very quickly, if we want to keep up with the rapid pace of change and, well, disruption in this world.

I'll focus two different #innochats on this notion of the evolution of disruption. In the first one we will play online the wonderful new game called Disruptus that was created by Julien Sharp of Funnybone Toys (@JulienSharp). I'll admit, I was prepared to be skeptical when I met Julien in New York the day before the conference for a demonstration of the game, but when she explained how it works, I fell in love with it. She's onto something, for sure!

Exploring the Benefits of Side Projects

One of the big pushes in the personal productivity movement is the strict approach to prioritization. Eliminate everything that is not essential to your progress and focus on those one or two things you need to accomplish here and now. A narrow perspective will help you accelerate your project and will result in you To Do list becoming a Have Done list with great rapidity. This seems like solid enough advice, except it is born from a mindset that prizes productivity over creativity and action over reflection.

You may recall that several weeks ago I led a chat called Balancing Perceptive and Analytical Thinking in Innovation, in which we looked at @JonahLehrer's How We Decide to see what he could illuminate for us about thinking innovatively.
