Better Ideas, Faster in your hands

Our best creative thoughts are spontaneous. We all know it. Because we’ve all experienced it. And we know the Best Ideas result from connecting our Ideas with others creative thoughts and Ideas.

The BIF challenge is to do both: grab spontaneous thoughts and Ideas when they happen, then save and share them with friends and colleagues for collaborative co-creation.

I’ve created the BIF app to do just that. Meaning the power of doing Better Ideas, Faster is in your hands.

the BIF app for BIF storms

The creative economy is only getting faster... ergo BIF’s Accelerated Innovation. Keeping up - and staying ahead - requires new kinds of creative collaboration and co-creation.  

Problem is too many are using old-school brainstorms to try and feed their hungry idea-pipelines. It’s not working, and most know it's not.

Thing is, no-one has yet created a Better way that means people don’t default back to bad brainstorms. Until now.

BIF’s No More Brainstorms is a learning-as-activity workshop that teases the brainstorm into it’s constituent parts. Individuals and teams are lead through re-examining and then recombining these parts into the BIF brain storm as collaborative co-creation (using the BIF app as collaborative facilitator).

Creating Better Ideas Faster is not only possible - it's also a natural part of us. The only trick required is to know how - and then do.

Created by Matt Hart


founder of Better Ideas Faster

matt-hart-02.jpg

Matt is three parts consultant, innovator and entrepreneur. He's innovated with some of the world's best known brands and businesses - commercially and not-for-profit. He's known for translating the science of innovation to the arts. And he's innovated his own tried and proven methods to do it. They're now yours if you want them.

I believe in ideas. I believe in the power of ideas to transform things for the better. Goodness knows when you look around - and ahead - we're going to need a whole new generation of ideas. New ideas, solutions, brands, technologies, etc that will have to come from a whole new generation of idea innovators. Because the old ways of getting them won’t cut it.

That's where I come in. I'm been hugely fortunate to develop my creative talents and proprietary methods working with and learning from the world's best. I was attracted to downloading and codifying what worked and what didn't and then piloting new approaches that would innovate still Better Ideas, Faster.

Now I'm sharing this with as many as possible - because I love lighting other's creative fires, but mostly because we desperately need new generations of innovative problem solvers.

When it comes down to it, I believe that you are your Best Idea. Ultimately that's what BIF is really about - you becoming better.

BIF is you - with others - becoming next-generation problem solvers for what ever the problems are. For whatever the opportunities can become.

become your best idea

attraction-vs-promotion.png

Many need innovation. ‘Better Ideas, Faster’ is for those who want it. Those who are attracted to rediscovering their creative powers and applying them innovatively. In general this happens when things get really difficult and thus really wanted. I‘m cool with that. ‘Better Ideas, Faster’ was developed because of difficult!


I’ve been in applied creativity for 20+ years and I’m still learning. I’m still finding new ways to think new things and better ways to do new things. The only constant has been curiosity. Being constantly curious is the sole requirement to keep getting Better Ideas. Faster.

follow-soft-thinking.png

There’s hard and soft thinking. Hard thinking is finite: yes or no, like it or don’t, stop or go. Soft thinking lives in the world of don’t know, maybe, could be, if only. It’s in the soft thinking that the gold of fresh thoughts and Ideas are to be found. When you find them, follow them. Time will come later for thinking hard about them.

 

The still small voice inside is your creativity. The bandwidth it runs on is data. So your job is feed this bandwidth by absorbing the world around you, constantly. Find interest in the mundane and the profound. Then tune into your intuition. The ‘making sense’ of all the data happens via your intuition in the form of creative thoughts and Ideas.

ideas-ideas-ideas.png

It’s never the first Idea. Never. Even though the beta-brain wants to believe it is. Better Ideas come from collisions and connections between lots of Ideas. And then Ideas upon Ideas. You’ll know when the Idea is Best - because it won’t need any more Ideas.

solve-problems-for-the-wrong-reasons.png

Go at problems indirectly. I call it Accelerated Innovation and it works by letting the thoughts and Ideas lead the way. Otherwise you end up going direct at problems in a linear fashion. Which usually ends up exactly where you assumed. Which isn’t innovation.

 
everyone-profits.png

Solving problems that matter - ideas with purpose - takes investment. Cash. So profit isn’t a dirty word. Profit powers innovating Ideas that the world needs. But let's redefine ‘profit’ from business-only to include 'people and planet' so that we all benefit in all kinds of ways. Be for innovating Ideas that include ‘us’ so that everyone profits.


The world is moving beyond what you do and how you do it to why you do it. It’s called ‘purpose’. Purpose matters. It’s the deeper reason why you’re doing what you’re doing. It’s your truth in business. And your fans will engage with you - and support you - because your truth also matters deeply to them too. So, know your story. And share it on purpose.

live-and-let-live.png

Failure and success will be the innovators lot. Get ok with it as there will always unintended consequences you can’t innovate for. If the Idea is Best for you, do it. It will probably be Best for others. And if not, fail as fast as you can. Because in the secrets of failure are your Ideas - eventual - success.
