Whole-Body Thinking Make Cents $$

On one hand, the quest for innovation by companies, organizations and individuals remind me of the story behind the movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” We know the ark is out there somewhere, it not easy to find and the path to get there is increasingly dangerous.

Whole Body thinking, or Sense, makes CentsOn the other hand, the path to innovation is literally right under our noses. It may sound corny to say wake-up and smell the roses; however, that cliché is right on target.

It’s all about whole-body thinking

Whole-body thinking is the natural gift we were all born with. Through our damaging and non-innovative educational system the process of whole-body thinking has been strip mined – turned off.

Okay, so what is whole-body thinking? It’s engaging, utilizing and thinking with all six of our senses. That’s right, there is a sixth sense. First, let me remind you of the five senses most should be familiar with. Sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch. Yet, we look but we don’t see! We listen but we don’t hear! We breathe but we don’t smell – the roses! We eat but we don’t taste! And we touch but we don’t feel! And the sixth sense is called Mind Sense!

There is nothing esoteric about this. Numerous studies utilizing MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) shows that the more you are in touch with all of your senses the more facile, imaginative and creative your thinking becomes.

The senses are the keys to innovation. Now the trick is how to turn those keys into innovation through creative thinking.

Our constantly and rapidly changing digital world has us all on speed. We are simply wired to our fingers on keypads and touchpads.

So wake up and take the time to SEE the roses, SMELL the roses, TOUCH the roses, TASTE the roses – it makes great tea, and HEAR your internal response to the roses engaging your MIND sense.

Turn on the awareness of your senses and you will benefit from whole-body thinking.
