Innovation and Learning

Start with clarity of intent.

Now build it out with an evocative vision. Improvise progress by tinkering: with lots of trial and lots of error. The not knowing is the best bit: the mysteries the surprises, and from time to time the windfalls! 

Hello there, I'm Steve Collis!

Brain Bucks

I've made up a term: 'brain dollars', A brain dollar is a unit of good quality attention. Let's say, in 24 hours, you have 100 'brain dollars' to spend. It's a tight budget!

What are you spending them on?

Me? I'm spending it on stuff.

I know what you're thinking - whatever stuff I'm spending my bucks on must be mighty important.

It's really hard to know! My stuff is insidiously infected with powerful entities that demand $$. 

What will really help me, is to allocate a few of my brain bucks - let's say 15 of them, to establish and maintain an Expenditures Committee. My E.C. will look for ways to shift the budget. 

It will hold meetings in my prefrontal cortex. It will speak confidently and hopefully.

It will say: "Let's build a new budget around increasing the spend on Profoundly Worthwhile." It will say it again tomorrow. It's bucks well spent!

Hopefully it will spiral - and I'll reinvest the $$ earned on intensifying the process. Before you know it, my budget will be full of purpose. Deliberate. Mindful.

I tip my hat to you, dear reader. Let's spend 'em well!
