What’s in it for me? Discover what it takes to become a design thinker.

Let’s borrow a time machine and travel back in time. What would you see? Horse-drawn coaches; no telephones; perhaps even hunter-gatherers looking for a square meal for the tribe.

Our lives today are, of course, different. Innovations in technology and agriculture have made living in the modern world simpler and easier. One would think, therefore, that innovation equals progress.

But is this true? These blinks show us that, although innovation is powerful, it hasn’t exactly made our lives better. What is needed to invent truly innovative products or services that make our lives truly better is a whole different type of thinking, called design thinking.

In these blinks, you’ll discover

  • how being “thoughtless” could lead to thoughtful innovation;
  • why thinking with your hands beats thinking with your head; and
  • how sharing stories can get people to be more charitable.
