Everyday you go to the same place to work, in the same environment. You see the same people and you are surrounded by the same sensory inputs (beige). And you usually have to solve the same, or similar, problem over and over again. Your company makes most of its money selling the latest version, of the same product, to the same set of customers. Yet when those same things don’t bring in the same results, you’re expected to come up with new ideas. How are you supposed to come up with new “creative” ideas when you see the same people, in the same buildings, after driving the same route to work, sitting at the same desk, or in the same generic conference rooms? Our brains don’t work that way.
