Exploitation vs. Exploration

Blink:

What is one of the major differences between adults and kids when it comes to day to day thinking.  Answer: Exploitation vs. Exploration

Read On:

One definition of exploitation is the action of making use (a.k.a. capitalization) and benefiting from resources.  As it relates to adult thinking, we tend to draw on the wealth of our life experiences.  Consequently, sometimes adult thinking is biased and lacks objectivity.  Exploration is the act of exploring or investigating the unknown.  Innovation can be a byproduct of exploration.  Suggestion: Sit in a local playground and watch how kids navigate/explore all the different equipment and play.

Are you ready to be a kid again and innovate?
