Unlearning is the Key to Creativity

Posted in Business, Creativity, Culture, Education, Future, General, Innovation, Kindergarten, Marketing, Science, Unlearn Strategy

Yesterday, I argued that unlearning is important to developing curiosity in children. Somewhat serendipitously, Seth Godin yesterday had a post entitled "Why Ask Why" in which he suggested that curiosity is the key to creativity. I agree. It also reminded me of this excellent post (Learning to Unlearn: The Innovation Connection) by E. Ted Price who convincingly argues that unlearning is an integral component of the innovation process.

So there you have it, my friends, unlearning is a critical element in spurring both creativity and innovation. Just two more reasons why we need to begin teaching unlearning in kindergarten.
