Embrace the uninhibited curiosity of an 8-year-old to rethink your products, services, strategies or even life. This child-like perspective helps simplify complex ideas, allowing for clearer communication and decision-making. Let go of what you think you know and open yourself up to what you don’t understand.
Embrace ignorance – don’t let what you know cloud what you don’t know.
Don’t shy away from ‘silly questions’ as they often lead to profound insights. Remember, 8-year-olds question without judgment, see connections adults overlook and make fewer (or at least different) assumptions. Their unique perspective can spark innovation and challenge hidden biases, fostering a fresh and creative approach to problem-solving.
Sometimes the most complex challenges can benefit from the simplest and most innocent perspectives. This questioning technique is one of the simplest in theory and yet can be hard to apply in practice until people feel free to give it a go.
