In his book – Where Good Ideas Come From – Steven Johnson offers seven conditions that he believes to enable discoveries and inventions. Each condition or piece of evidence is given its own chapter:
- The adjacent possible
- Liquid networks
- The slow hunch
This video is a summary of Steve’s explanation – told and illustrated at breath-taking pace – of how we come up with our great ideas. Enjoy!
P.S. For those not into reading books, Seth Godin provides a quick checklist (of where idea’s come from) on his blog too!
