On becoming a broad thinker

It isn’t some difficult task.

You have to do two things to be able to think broadly.

First, deliberately put yourself in different kinds of experiences. Travel to a different city, eat a different kind of food, interview a prostitute, live with the Amish for a weekend, go hitchhiking.

And second, you have to think about these experiences more than the average person does. So you have an experience and then you sit down for an hour and just write everything that caught your attention.

We look at the creative thinkers among us, and think “How do you do it!!!”

But they’ve just had more experiences than you and they’ve thought more about their experiences than you have yours.

It’s challenging to do, but simple to understand.
