Pushing an idea to the extreme.

The goal of this exercise is to discard the bias that the development of an idea stops at some point. To develop unique and transformative ideas, we must adopt a new mindset. We must believe that whatever advances we have made on an idea is the new starting point. We have to practice the habit of seeing the world as it is right now rather than associating it with the struggles it took to get here. This is because these achievements might make us complacent and stagnant. Keep in mind that this version will act as a launchpad for even better solutions.

Instructions

  1. Take any one of your solutions from any area of your life.
    This solution could be from home, work, your relationships, etc.
  2. Now ask yourself, "How can I make this better?"
    Don't ask questions like, "Can this be improved?" Instead, assume that you have a blind spot somewhere and that there are spaces in your solution which can be tweaked further to make the solution even better.
