Success Podcasts - "Killer Innovations" for Dec 19th

The December 19th podcast of Phil McKinney's "Killer Innovations" is a treasure-trove of solutions to creativity block. I have been a long-time subscriber to this podcast, but this episode is a real keeper. McKinney is a high-ranking technology manager and innovation is his business.

Many of the techniques he mentions remind me of some of Edward DeBono's example: imagine of you are trying to accomplish the opposite of your current task...a great way to "short circuit" your brain into some new answers.

To come up with solutions I often try Brian Tracy's "20-Idea List" method, but Phil's many provocative methods are going to be useful additions in the pursuit of creative problem-solving.
