The Myths of Innovation - Scott Berkun

I am working my way through Scott Berkun's book: The Myths of Innovation this week. It reads easily. A good quote from the section I read this morning:
"Like the child in the park, creativity is intertwined with the ability to see ideas as fluid, free things. Ideas come, they go, and that's OK; to an open mind, ideas are everywhere (something I'll prove momentarily). It's the willingness to explore, experiment, and play, to invest energy, hit a dead end, and then chase a new direction that allows minds to find good ideas. All of our notions of play, and its freedoms from formal judgement, are inexplicably linked to finding good ideas."

Are you going to find time to play today?
