Consider the following (depending on which country you are from you may miss the point in one or two):

“If you see someone doing the impossible, don’t interrupt them”
Amar Bose (Bose Corporation

“Space is not remote, you can get there in an hour if you can make your car travel vertically”
Fred Hoyle (Astronomer)

“A sure cure for seasickness is to sit under a tree”
Spike Milligan (Comedian)

“I took a speed reading course and read War and Peace in twenty minutes. Its about Russia”
Woody Allen (Comedian)

“Those who say it can’t be done are being passed by those who are doing it”
Anonymous

“I said ‘nearest the bull starts’. He said ‘baa’, I said ‘moo’. He said ‘you start'”
Peter Kaye (Comedian)

“‘Hallo Rabbit’, he said, ‘Is that you?’. ‘Lets pretend it isn’t’ said Rabbit, ‘and see what happens'”
Winnie-the-pooh (bear, philosopher and explorer)

Now you may chuckle at one or more of the above, but did you wonder why? It is the juxtaposition of (strange) ideas that does it. It is exactly this mode of thinking that we need in the business world to be able to see things from a new perspective, generate ideas and spot new opportunities.
