Step #1 — Observe

Take a look at our surroundings.

How? Have a walk, commute, work out, read, listen to music, watch movies, cook, hear podcasts, etc.

Step #2 — Learn

Ask yourself “What can I learn from this?”.

To take it to the next level: Write down your learnings.

Step #3 — Create

Produce something from your observation & learnings.

Photo, micro-blog, article, videos, podcast, handwriting, food, handcraft, song, cloth, poem, etc.

Step #4 — Improve

Publish your work and ask for feedback from others.

Improve the work based on that.

(Repeat — Repeat)

  1. Know a topic quite well? it’s 101% okay to share your opinion about it. At the end of it, you can ask “What about you? What do you think about (insert the topic here)?
  2. Not really familiar with the topic? it’s 101% okay to say “I don’t know enough about this to have an opinion”
  3. Have a different opinion? Be curious about it and ask “That’s interesting, tell me more about it!

Learnings:

  • Block and set time for “listening”. To learn, observe, and process the information to coming up with new ideas
  • For producers (managers), understand each of your talents and create an environment or system that can help them to learn and grow
  • Song Demo: Don’t be afraid of sharing raw ideas with others and get feedback. Do this sooner and more often.
  • As a leader, create an environment where it’s okay to share unperfect ideas and not being judged, instead of getting constructive feedback and additional ideas to sharpen it.
  • TBC...

These are personal learning notes from the books and articles I read, the videos I watched, podcasts I listened to, or people I talked to.
