How To Become Smart

In this instructional video, you'll learn ways to use creative thinking to become smarter on any topic you choose. It explains how to look at things from every perspective in order to become a genius on the topic you choose.

How to become smart. I believe that anyone can be smart about any topic. One great way to get smart is to pick your topic and have a read-up and memorize five great facts, or statistics, or ideas about your topic.

You can wheel these out at any point. Just say, “Ah, that reminds me about…” and give a statistic, or give a fact, or mention a name and people will think, “Oh, they know what they're talking about”. You can become smart on any topic.

Just begin by deciding what it is you want to read up on and read three or four different areas. Begin chatting with people about it. Really, everyone is born a genius.

Everyone has a smart gene and you can be smart on any topic. You can just decide to go off, research a few facts because once you start talking on any topic and you start delivering some facts and stats and well known ideas, then you'll have the impression that you're very smart on that topic. Being smart is about raising your creativity on your topic and thinking of different ways of combining ideas.

So, often the people who are called smart are the ones that are coming up with ideas that are slightly left of center. Perhaps, a different way of looking at things. So, one way to develop your smartness is really imagine that the idea you're thinking about is on the table and walk around the table and look at it from a different angle.

Look it from a different perspective. Look at it from someone who would see it very differently to you. Smartness if often to do with creativity different ways of seeing things, so learn to see things differently and inevitably, you'll get a lot smarter.

The really smart people will see many different angles on the same topic but be able to think of different ways of looking at it. Different solutions will arise. Whether you're in a meeting at work, developing new ideas on a design board, you'll become a lot smarter when using creative thinking and thinking of things upside down, sideways, and differently.
