Generate New Ideas By Contribution And Contradiction


Generating new ideas of your own is difficult for many people.

So here’s a simple way to leverage other people’s ideas, add your perspective to them, and ultimately come up with your own unique ideas on the subject in the process.

The Contribution

Take an idea that you agree with, then add a ‘Yes, and…’

eg: Yes, and…here’s how it could apply to my industry.

The Contradiction

Take an idea that you disagree with, then add a ‘Yes, but…’

eg: Yes, but…this is why that wouldn’t work in my industry.

Apply this simple process and before you know it you’ll be seen as a true Though Leader in your industry.
