The importance of picking shells at the beach

Shells on the Beach

How often have you had your very best ideas at work or while you are thinking about a problem? Very rarely I would believe. More likely, it might have happened when you were washing the dishes after dinner, taking a shower, walkin in the forest or picking shells on the beach.

Shells on the Beach

Hur ofta har du fått dina allra bästa idéer på jobbet eller medan du intensivt tänkt på ett problem? Väldigt sällan skulle jag tro. Mer sannolikt hände det kanske när du diskade, stod och duschade, gick en skogspromenad, eller plockade snäckor på stranden. Arkimedes fick sin Eureka-upplevelse när han satt i badet.

Det finns en bedräglig uppfattning att vissa personer är medfött kreativa och med ett briljant sinne kan komma upp med banbrytande innovativa idéer från ingenstans. Denna missuppfattning har uppkommit från berättelser om de stora genierna, vars idéer varit omedelbara. Kanske är det bästa exemplet historien om hur ett fallande äpple plötsligt gav Isaac Newtons idén till den nya mekanistiska fysiken.
