Issue Three: Collaborative Innovation and the Synergy Between Intention and Flow
This Issue of Collaborative Innovation was inspired when I asked brilliant Glass Artist Michael Smith, to talk about what was inside him in moments of moving from a fiery blob of glass to a beautiful, unfathomable Glass Comet. Instantly he said that this was in creating “Synergy Between Intention and Flow”. Since then, in a World Academy of Art and Science conference, one of the topics was the need to integrate Art and Science and have far greater balance in business and life between linear thinking and artistic creativity. In this Journal, some of the best and brightest people we know talk about what they think, feel, want, imagine and hope for meaningful progress with respect to creating Synergy Between Intention and Flow in individuals and groups.
While I do my best to find authors and ideas that have merit, the truth is a deep well and there may be no bottom. Einstein sought to find the mind of God through physics. Others through philosophy, others through pragmatics of their own business and life, others through values they hold dear, and others through love, self-importance, or some combination of all. Hopefully, this journey makes things better for some peoples’ lives and work. It’s a journey with many contradictions and ultimately without proof. There is always more to learn.
Please take what you will.
