When things go wrong, how do you handle it?
Or do you look at it as positive opportunity to learn, change, re-innovate, and grow?
Create Your Own Creative Inspiration Word for When Things Go Wrong
During an Idea Magnets workshop, we invited each participant to make up a positive-sounding word to say whenever something goes wrong. The idea is to address what may seem like a disaster with creative inspiration. Then we practiced saying their words LOUDLY and BOLDLY!
When I put the question above to Facebook friends before the Idea Magnets workshop, two people from very different parts of my life quickly shared ideas. I went to high school with David Gabler; he suggested, "SMAILURE!" Dennis Smith is an amazing design thinking expert we met through a client engagement. Dennis developed, "FABTASTROPHE!" Those are two fantastic new words for an Idea Magnet's vocabulary.
My initial idea was, "BRAVANEESIMO!"
