  • I sometimes help with brainstorming sessions at work to get ideas flowing, the person running the session is critical, they either help or hinder everyone go through these steps. Allowing extroverts to dominate typically is a common hindrance to idea development.

    Thanks Ray for this great podcast episode! I really didn’t have a good way to come up with my best ideas. Now I have something new to try. It really makes sense to go about it like this.

  • I liked your spiritual segment. It made me think of Bob Flayheart’s statement “We should gaze at our Savior and glance at our sin.”
