We remember Hitler for all the wrong reasons, but here I came across an interesting fact:
One of the most respected auto brand volkswagen was Hitler’s vision!
Volswagen in german means: People’s car.
Important thing is, he did not just thought of creating a car for the masses, he also made it happen by creating a team and putting resources. He even had a plan about how common people will be able to buy a car!
The world is open and people are collaborating beyond boundaries.
Technology is bringing people together to share, to create and to realise the oneness of life here on our planet.

Brain is a beatiful instrument which plays with the ideas and creates new concepts out of them.
In my view technology makes new frontiers available to the brain to play with. A lots of creative ideas comes to us because new technology makes them possible.

Creative minds need no boundaries!
just to give you an example, here is the

Cannes Lions to honour Anglo-Dutch giant Unilever with Advertiser of the Year award – Campaign Brief
Here is a news which may surprise many in india.
At cannes Unilever is being honoured as the Advertiser of the year.
I have worked on Unilever brands in india and generally creative people shy away from Unilever accounts.
So from that perspective it seems like a paradox.
I hope this will create a new surge of creative spirit in Unilever India as well.
Creative people and discipline?
It seems like a paradox.
But when we look to it closely we will discover a concrete relation.
Creative minds are fertile minds. Truly creative artists and managers keep producing ideas on the go. As if there is an idea machine in their head which converts every stimulus into ideas.
As a result, they have more ideas spinning in their heads then they can execute.
Sometimes a new idea is so exciting that they keep ruminating about it and feel happy about it. The boundary between a concept and its actualisation is often blurred.
That’s why creative people need discipline. They need to prioritize the ideas they want to execute. And then they need to allocate time to bring forth those ideas in reality.
Execution of ideas is often not as exciting as creating new ideas. Many creatives think execution is not the same level of activity as ideation is. This mind block becomes a real barrier in producing results.
That’s why it becomes important to have a balance between the ideation and execution time.
A creative genius is known by the work he produces..
A novel, painting or a wonderful business model in our head doesn’t exist in the world.
It’s like a seed in a plastic pouch!
So let us monitor how we are consuming our time and energy on a day to day basis. That will help us realise our true potential as creative thinkers and doers.
