Emotion, Perception & Change - You want me to do what…Design and build a shoe tower…What about, “This course can empower you to develop your creative human potential to improve, enhance, and transform your business, community, and personal life”…I just started the course, “Creativity, Innovation, and Change” by Pennsylvania State University through Coursera. My mind momentarily backed up to 10 years ago when I designed and built a prototype apparatus for testing the friction resistance of lubricants as part of my Master of Science Thesis Project. But that was then and this is now.

Emotion, Perception, and Change are part of business, part of our
communities and are part of our personal lives. In business
development, marketing, sales, management, leadership and in many
other fields of endeavors our emotions and perceptions help guide our
thoughts. An interesting article from the Swiss Medical Weekly, “The
impact of emotion on perception, attention, memory, and
decision-making” can be reached on this link -
http://www.smw.ch/content/smw-2013-13786/

Well, on to the shoe tower. In the spirit of the moment and as a
requirement of the course my emotions and initial perceptions of the
exercise had to change to release the sometimes hard to define word
called creativity. The picture of the shoe tower associated with this
article may or may not have the value of 1,000 words but I will be
briefer. The exercise had rules, constraints, consequences and other
factors to think about such as: grade for the assignment, maximum
height to the number of shoes, free standing, practicality, basic
engineering principles, color, and aesthetics… It dealt with failure,
completion and a deadline. Not that different to some of the
challenges we have (minus the shoe tower) in our working world and
personal lives.

Some of that creativity slipped in when my emotions and perceptions
changed about the exercise. I improved on my design, color and
aesthetics. A similar thing happened before in my pre-mentioned thesis
research in designing and building a prototype apparatus. My
perceptions changed [the planned utilization of existing equipment
which was no longer available] when I was surprised to find out I had
to design and build a prototype apparatus for testing the friction
resistance of canola and petroleum lubricants as part of my Master of
Science Thesis Project [You want me to do what…The machine shop is in the back!]. Admittedly I had to deal with project management, physics, engineering design, constraints, consequences, standards, testing, team work, creativity, failure, completion, deadlines and working with a leading research company.

One’s emotions can change one’s perceptions and with this new found view perhaps change one’s outcome. As far as the course goes; I am in to the finish line and enjoying this participatory ride. My
perceptions are clear but subject to change.

Thoroughly enjoyed the video.  It has been some time since I viewed the film.  Replayed the last 30 seconds many times.  Robin Williams delivers like nobody else…Passion, Passion, Passion…With performances like this [wisdom across many levels] he will always be with us...
