Intellect and intuition

The world we live in treasures the intellectual mind. From a young age we go to school – a structured environment where we are taught to follow instructions, process information and return expected answers in order to succeed. We are not encouraged to fail, nor are we given the freedom to define our own path.

This is the same in the workplace. We are expected to show up on time and follow the process we need to get the job done.

But the dark secret is that true value, both in our lives and in business, comes from creativity and new ideas. Creativity doesn’t come from intellect but from intuition – a skill few have taken the time to cultivate.
