Michael Michalko’s creative thinking techniques give you the extraordinary ability to focus on information in a different way and different ways to interpret what you are focusing on.

  • To the right is a picture of irregular black and white shapes.
  • Concentrate on the four small dots in the vertical row in the middle of the picture for at least 30 seconds.
  • Then close your eyes and tilt your head back. Keep them closed. Eventually, you will see a circle of light.
  • Continue looking at the circle. What do you see? Amazing isn’t it?

By focusing your attention in a different way (focusing on the dots and closing your eyes), you changed your perception of the pattern thereby allowing yourself to see something that you could not otherwise see. Similarly, the creative thinking techniques in Michael’s books will change the way you think by focusing your attention in different ways and giving you different ways to interpret what you focus on. The techniques will enable you to look at the same information as everyone else and see something different.
