Innovation Lunch

Update:  Lets self reflect on 2013 and think about what to do in 2014...

Mind-Mapping Technique for 2013 Achievements and 2014 Goals as Shared by Curt (inspired by the book "Your Best Year Ever")

1. Write, chart or draw your innovations, important things you did, or simply things you spent time and effort on in 2013.

2. Ask yourself, "what were my biggest disappointments?" and write them down.

3. Next ask, "what did I learn?" and write that down.

4. Now ask, "what will my values and guidelines on innovation be for the coming year?" (Example of a value: "I value being able to have time to do my own thing." Example of a guideline: "I will ensure that I schedule time for myself and keep that time clear.")

5. Write down some goals for yourself in the role of an innovator in 2014. (Note: goals should be specific, measurable, and start with a verb.)

Example: "Spend 1 hour each weekend revisiting my past innovation plans to see if any are worth resurrecting."

Another example: "Devote 1 hour per weekend on an innovation or idea that leads to nothing, just for the heck of it."
