1 Great Way to Be More Creative Each Day

I did a post late last summer about using Trait Transformation to revamp your personal brand.

Amazingly, it was almost a year into this blog before sharing this incredible technique that I use almost every day.

While you can use it formally (i.e., with a full grid and a listing of the attributes for your innovation topic), it’s easy to commit the “transformer” questions to memory and simply run through them at any time.

  • How could we do more of it?
  • How could we do less of it?
  • In what ways could we replace it?
  • Is there a way to turn it around?
  • Is there a way to remove it?
  • Are there ways to customize it?
  • Can it be standardized?
  • How could we simplify things?

When thinking, interacting, or working with others ask these transformer questions to generate a nearly endless supply of new possibilities!
