Open thinking and creativity

Open thinking and creative techniques to solve problems of tomorrow. As Einstein put it: “Logic will get you from A to B; fantasy will get you anywhere”.

Logical thinking often finds us good solutions for issues. But sometimes, a better solution is hidden in an area of our brain, that we cannot access by logical thinking.
