Creative Thinking for Business
Creative Thinking E-book
The Mind Has A Creative Immune System
People may initially respond to your new and creative ideas like your immune system responds to a virus. Theyll try to reject your idea in a number of ways. Dont be surprised and get frustrated or take it personally, its human nature.
It takes time for a new idea to be accepted and the more creative the idea the longer it takes. If you have a great new creative idea, you should expect people to hate it. If they dont, they werent listening. Realizing your creative solution will initially be rejected is half the battle. Plan on it, prepare for it, and keep pushing forward. I am not suggesting that you push your boss to the point of one more time and your fired but often innovative and creative ideas never get past the incubation stage before they are killed. Realize that and stick with it.
