"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Is that really true today? In the world where access to information is more than easy, knowledge can be reached by anyone. But what about imagination?" "Of course technology offers beautiful and wonderful things to see but we forget too often to use our other senses which make work our imagination" "Yes, it is very important for a child to invent its own world where he could be the hero." "Naivety detaches us from the technique and allows us to invent incredible, impossible, and improbable things." "Craziness, naivety and expertise is a combination which could make your idea real one day" "What I am telling you today is to be a pioneer. Do not be afraid to imagine impossible things thanks to imagination. That's the reflection I offer you today: do not stop thinking like a child"

Joseph Beuys said: Every human being is an artist. Find out what he meant when he said these magic words. Children are more creative than adults. However, it seems we all have it within us. We just don't know it or we didn't find out yet. It might take a while until we actually realize that, but believe Martin KUPP, it's possible.Maybe it's hard for you to realize how or why, but the response might be easier than you imagine. It takes only a triple factor-based solution for multiple results. "Every human being is an artist." "Creativity is actually hard work."

"When we get together in groups to solve some problems or discuss some issues, we often forget to ask the basic questions: the what, the when, the why, the who, the how type of questions. And this is because nobody wants to appear as an amateur, expertise is more welcome. Your reputation is an important currency and nobody wants to gamble on it." "When you leave the amateur side of you outside of the room and you appear with your expertise, it's like throwing a party and take away all the drinks and you have that party with just red meat on the table. You can guess that that party is not going very far, something gets stuck somewhere. And that's where a lot of groups get stuck cause no juice, no party." "(...) group imagination and meaning, creativity are starting to bubble up and coming alive. And that I bet is something that you want. I bet that you want more people in your groups to show up in those meetings and problem-solving spaces with best creative-selves, motivated and with the best ideas. But that's not what always happens. Because money stays in the pocket unless you decide to process to get this money out."
