“Business is giving people in their lifetime what they need and what they want,” he says. “And you know, I've had great fun turning quite a lot of different industries on their head and making sure those industries will never be the same again, because Virgin went in and took them on.” ~Richard Branson

"Whenever I interview someone for a job, I like to ask this question: “What important truth do very few people agree with you on?”
Excerpt from "Zero to One" by Peter Thiel
Jonathan Chew
"Everyone is Creative; Some just haven't found the right brush yet."
Being different is....kinda normal

Everyone has a unique view of the world

Just because someone has the same idea doesn't mean yours have no value
Goal <- Tangible <- Intangible
Name three leaders you know who do one or more of these things...

Having Vision is to look at something Differently, a unique perspective to a given situation
(Cont. from above)

What does this contrarian question have to do with the future? In the most minimal sense, the future is simply the set of all moments yet to come. But what makes the future distinctive and important isn’t that it hasn’t happened yet, but rather that it will be a time when the world looks different from today. In this sense, if nothing about our society changes for the next 100 years, then the future is over 100 years away. If things change radically in the next decade, then the future is nearly at hand. No one can predict the future exactly, but we know two things: It’s going to be different, and it must be rooted in today’s world. Most answers to the contrarian question are different ways of seeing the present; good answers are as close as we can come to looking into the future.

When we think about the future, we hope for a future of progress. That progress can take one of two forms. Horizontal or extensive progress means copying things that work—going from 1 to n. Horizontal progress is easy to imagine because we already know what it looks like. Vertical or intensive progress means doing new things—going from 0 to 1. Vertical progress is harder to imagine because it requires doing something nobody else has ever done. If you take one typewriter and build 100, you have made horizontal progress. If you have a typewriter and build a word processor, you have made vertical progress.

My own answer to the contrarian question is that most people think the future of the world will be defined by globalization, but the truth is that technology matters more.
A good answer takes the following form: “
Most people believe in x
, but the
truth is the opposite of x
.”
The "I believe"
Passion comes from belief in an idea
Think about the things in your life that you believe to be true
What do you believe in?
&
All of us have some measure of Unique Vision and Imagination available to us; We just need to learn how to tap into it.

We wanted to win competitions!
However...
No team
No system to pass on knowledge
No money!
We're going to start deconstructing leadership; We have a few examples of our own, but while we're going through our own examples, we want you to see if you can find any or all of these qualities in the leaders that you've chosen.

What would happen if you combined this product with another, to create something new?
How could you adapt or readjust this product to serve another purpose?
-or- Think if there’s a solution for another problem that you may mold to suit your situation.
How could you enlarge or change the shape, look, or feel of your product?
Can you use this product somewhere else, perhaps in another industry?
How could you streamline or simplify this product?
What would happen if you changed the order or reversed this process or sequenced things differently?
What materials or resources can you substitute or swap to improve the product?

ombine = 2 ride systems: omnimover (Haunted Mansion) + motion base (Star Tours)
dapt = use IP (intellectual property) that is more exciting to the new generation (Indiana Jones)
odify and Magnify = not a book report of a movie, focus on one new adventure entirely
ut to other uses = this could possibly be used as a stunt show somewhere else (in Florida)
liminate = the driver... it's a car that you can't drive, and there is no host... except over the speaker
earrage or Reverse = one of the BEST special effects ever created... the ball rolls toward you and the room moves around you away simultaneously to make it seem like you're backing up
ubstitute = turn a normal line into a show - make it seem like you're going deeper into the forbidden temple and give you secret characters to decode and things to pull/interact
Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Forbidden Eye
Environment plays an important role in stimulating or inhibiting creative impulses. A creative environment acts like a support system; it promotes relaxation and ultimately cushions creative thoughts. This is why huge companies like Google and Facebook are doing next-level investments in providing their employees with a very fun, relaxing environmental setting similar to a playground for grown-ups. The purpose is to provide a comfortable and relaxing zone where ideas can be easily vocalized. In such an environment, even unusual and bizarre ideas are appreciated because it is in the midst of those ideas that some really great ideas with potential for success are created and nurtured.

without vision... the road is:
Kids are awash with creative energy in part because they have not yet learned to fear the criticism of their peers or experienced embarrassment from failure.
