Monthly Method Spotlight: Be a Kid


When/why: A type of role playing that can help to KISS; keep-it-simple-silly. When projects begin to seem gigantic and overwhelming be a kid. This method can be used in combination with almost all of our previous method spotlights.

How: Go back to the 10-year-old you and role play how you would approach the project, questions the curious 10-year-old you would ask, creative approaches the younger you may have taken, etc.

Tips: For example, combine being a kid with fly on the wall and make a list of observations the 10-year-old you might make. Just remember that the younger you would probably keep it simple and fun.

Interested in using/applying these methods in your work? Contact us for more info.
