One of my favorite exercises he writes about he titles, The Gamemaker.
- You must create a game out of what is in your reach right now, like literally touch with your body.
- This game needs an objective and rules. It must end in a winner and therefore a loser. This is not a game where everyone wins.
- You have twelve minutes....Go!
The point of this exercise is to help with problem solving. So many of us feel that in order to solve a problem we need to reach to something we don't already have. Oftentimes the more limitations we have the more creative we can get. Look to what you already have to figure out your problem. To quote Stefan, "Next time you're given a problem to solve, don't worry about what you don't have... focus on what you do have."
