Fostering a creative mindset and nurturing innovative ideas can propel your career forward, regardless of your industry or role.

    Embrace a Growth Mindset

    Create an Inspiring Work Environment

    • Foster a culture of openness and inclusivity: Encourage diverse perspectives and create an environment where individuals feel comfortable sharing their ideas without fear of judgment.
    • Provide autonomy and freedom: Give employees the freedom to explore new approaches, make decisions, and take ownership of their work. This autonomy can fuel creativity and innovation.

    Encourage Collaboration and Brainstorming

    • Promote cross-functional collaboration: Encourage collaboration across teams and departments to leverage diverse skill sets and knowledge. Foster an environment where ideas can flow freely.
    • Conduct brainstorming sessions: Create dedicated time and space for brainstorming sessions to generate and explore new ideas collectively. Encourage all participants to contribute without limitations.

    Embrace Risk-Taking

    • Encourage calculated risk-taking: Create a culture where calculated risks are embraced, and employees feel supported in taking them. Encourage experimentation and learning from both successes and failures.
    • Provide resources for experimentation: Allocate resources, such as time, budget, and tools, to support innovative projects and initiatives. This shows a commitment to nurturing creativity.

    • Create a safe space for expression: Ensure that all employees feel valued and heard. Create an inclusive environment where individuals feel comfortable expressing their ideas and opinions without fear of judgment or bias.

    Provide Time for Reflection and Solitude

    • Allocate time for reflection: Encourage employees to set aside dedicated time for reflection and deep thinking. This allows for creative insights and problem-solving.
    • Foster a balance between collaboration and solitude: While collaboration is important, balance it with opportunities for individual focus and solitude, which can stimulate innovative thinking.

By embracing a growth mindset, creating an inspiring work environment, encouraging collaboration, embracing risk-taking, fostering continuous learning, embracing diversity and inclusion, and providing time for reflection and solitude, you can unleash your own creativity and inspire innovation within your team and organization.

    • Some people may think buying on auctions is for old/used stuff.

      eBay has a ton of brand new/never used stuff listed and I always buy new.

      Verify seller reputation from buyer feedback comments and ratings.

      If you receive the product not as per the description, eBay will cover it and get you a refund on retuning the item as part of their Money Back Guarantee. For this, eBay holds funds from sellers for 3 weeks so seller can ship the item, buyer can receive it, use it and report any issues.


      Often times, just communicating with the seller by sending a message through Contact Seller link on the listing page prior to bidding and asking questions about the condition of the item is a good start. Shy away from sellers who do not communicate enough. You can even negotiate a lower price with the seller, ask him to amend the listing so you can bid on it quickly and win it. I won countless auctions this way as the first bidder before other bidders got to even bid on the item.


      Use AuctionSniper.com - they charge a nominal fee like pennies and I never lost an auction in over a decade. AuctionSniper gives each new user 3 free snipe credits. Each free snipe credit is good for one winning snipe. After these are used up, they charge a modest fee of 1.75% of the final auction price, starting as low as 35¢ a snipe. You can also refer your friends and neighbors to sign up with them. Each sign-up will net you 3 free snipes and of course they get 3 free snipes for trying them too. Compared to how much you save in winning the items at the lowest prices, their fee is peanuts...

    • Article-vs-Blog: What are the differences? When to use which?

      While writing content, one might get confused whether to write it as an article or as a blog post. This article will discuss the subtle differences between these two types of content and help you decide which one to use in what context.


      Articles are more detailed involving research and studies, gathering facts. They are longer, formal, professional and more informative. Articles are often published in newspapers, magazines, journals, academic publications or online. They are written to provide detailed analysis, research, or news on a specific topic and are typically more objective and unbiased. They can be 5,000 words or more, and may include citations or quotes from sources.

      Articles exist in the global space and you are the author of the articles you write. Feel free to write Articles here in your area of expertise...

      Blogs Posts

      Blog posts tend to be shorter, informal, casual, and conversational. For instance, Twitter is a micro-blogging platform. Bog posts can be 3,000 words or more. They are usually published on websites or online platforms and businesses prefer them mostly. Blog posts are written from a personal perspective based on opinion. They can include facts or information, but they are based on experience and include more personality. Due to their short and conversational nature, blogs often get shared across social media and get discussed with questions and comments. For simpler and shorter content, just use our Blogs and Blog-Entries...

      A Blog is like a YouTube channel and Blog Entries (posts) within the blog are like the individual videos within the channel which means only you can author Blog Entries inside your Blogs while other users can only comment on your entries (similar to a channel, its videos and video comments). Blogs exist under YOU > Blogs > Blog Entries.

    • Having great communication skills, spoken or written, is one thing. Knowing which method or tool to use to communicate in which context is a whole different skill that needs to be mastered as well, which will complement your communication skills.

      Many experienced people, even at their workplaces, are unclear with which tool to use in what context and give the not-so-graceful or effective communication experience to other people involved. On an earlier project, I was asked to differentiate between various methods of communication and when to use which. So, which method is appropriate for which task? Here are the popular methods of communication and their contextual uses. If you stick to these guidelines, people will understand that you are smart and good at using the right communication tool in the right context:

      Face-to-face talk (swing by)

      Most distracting
      Inability to refocus back on the task mostly
      Obliged to answer immediately
      Get instant answers
      Answer even if in the middle of something
      Likely to derail mind from the current task ("OK, where was I...?")

    • In this day and age, it takes 30-40 hours to drive from Springfield, IL to Sutter's Fort, CA but back in 1846, it would take 4-6 months in a wagon train. In the 19th century, people traveling west in North America used a long line of wagons, cows and horses, known as a wagon train. Wagon trains were the only overland form of transportation into the western US until the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad in 1869. Some reasons for traveling in a wagon train include:

      To get there safely
      To protect themselves from attacks by Native Americans 

      Covered wagons could travel 8 to 20 miles per day, depending on the weather, roadway conditions, and the health of the travelers. It could take up to six months or longer to reach their destination.
