"I just did an arc with Warren Ellis — and no one else on the planet could get away with this, because I think this is like harassment? — But Warren felt like there was a depiction of Spider-Woman where it looked like her waist perhaps didn’t contain any internal organs.

  • Experimenting, which prompts innovators to relentlessly try out new experiences, take things apart, and test new ideas.
  • Associational Thinking, drawing connections between questions, problems, or ideas from unrelated fields, which is triggered by questioning, observing, networking, and experimenting and is the catalyst for creativity.


The 5 traits of successful innovators, according to research from the Harvard Business School.

For the second point, learn how to master the art of observation.
