Creativity is good for business. Sounds simple. But too often, when we're in a crunch, under pressure, in the weeds, it's the first thing to go. We've all been there and decided to do what's safe. Play it by the book. Get the heat off, get creative later.
That's why we've created this day's worth of conversations with people who place a premium on creativity. Bookmark a few of the stories we're rolling out all day on Fastcompany.com—they're from Fast Company, Co.Create, Co.Design, Co.Exist, and Co.Labs. No one discipline has the monopoly on creativity.
The idea is that the next time you find yourself short on time and low on genius, you'll turn to some of this inspiration from:
- A late 2013 live chat with Udacity founder Sebastian Thrun, who found himself re-evaluating his own creative approach to revolutionizing education.
- Foursquare founder Dennis Crowley
- Girls In Tech founder Kate Bradock and Microsoft Research's danah boyd talk about the value of taking connections offline.
- Behance founder Scott Belsky and Fast Company writer and Cultivated Wit co-founder Baratunde Thurston reveal the truth about brainstorming.
