Helpful Tips

Get The Most Out Of These Cards

Each card in the deck packs a two-sided creative punch. One side has a provocative insight about innovation from Heraclitus, the world’s first creativity teacher. These 2,500 year old ideas - such as "You can’t step into the same river twice," "Everything flows," "That which opposes produces a benefit," and "Dogs bark at what they don’t understand" -will give you a fresh perspective. The other side contains a creativity strategy inspired by each insight. Roger von Oech enriches these strategies with amusing anecdotes and intriguing questions that will "whack" you out of old thought patterns. The result is a treasury of sixty creativity strategies that include: Appreciate Turbulence, Ask A Fool, See the Obvious, Beware of Hubris, and Reverse Assumptions. Play with the deck on a regular basis. Not only will it provoke original thoughts, it will also become a wise companion whose guidance you will welcome!
