“It seems to be one of the paradoxes of creativity that in order to think originally, we must familiarize ourselves with the ideas of others.” — George Kneller
- Good News #1: There really is no such thing as an “original” idea or concept.
- Good News #2: Please bear with me and let me explain how you can easily become a Prolific Creative Genius:
I’ve been in the fashion business for over 35 years. For over 20 of those years I was a private label, ladies apparel manufacturer. What that means is my company designed, sold, manufactured and shipped ladies apparel to every major retailer in the USA.
The difference between a private label manufacturer and a brand name designer/ manufacturer (e.g. Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors), is that a private label manufacturer attaches a retailer’s name label to the garments, not their own company label, and ships the apparel, with the retailer’s name label, back to the retailer’s stores. The brand name designer/manufacturer puts their own brand name label in the apparel and, they then ship to the retailer’s stores (e.g. Macy’s, Bloomingdales, Saks).
We’re almost there
Our stock in trade, as a private label manufacturer, is the steady and voluminous flow of new designs, extreme “competitive” prices and personal relationships. Brand name designers come out with an average of 4- 6 fashion lines a year. As a private label manufacturer, to succeed and make money, you need to bring new designs that are well priced, to your retail customers, every week. You heard that right. You need to bring new designs to the market 52 weeks per year. Not many private label manufacturers were able to keep up with that pace of creativity.
A Point of View: “The creative person wants to be a know-it-all. He wants to know about all kinds of things-ancient history, nineteenth century mathematics, current manufacturing techniques, hog futures. Because he never knows when these ideas might come together to form a new idea. It may happen six minutes later, or six months, or six years. But he has faith that it will happen.” — Carl Ally
I personally designed my company’s fashion line for many years. Most private label manufacturers would shop the stores, like Macy’s, and spend thousands of dollars buying samples to copy them and then sell them to the budget and moderately priced retailers but, so did all their competition. You’d have 100+ salespeople running around the garment fashion centers in New York City and Los Angeles selling the same item, with the price dropping every time a buyer would view it. Competition has a way of doing that.
What did I do? I went to the large, small and obscure, sometimes very obscure, local and national off price retailers and bought discontinued, ancient and even moth-eaten designs for $5- $20. These were samples/garments that usually never saw the light of day for too long and so, very few people ever saw them. I went and morphed them into “originals” and made them my own “European” designs.
To “create” these “original European designs” I began by tweaking them with the hot accessories and fabrics of the day. I also took unique leg and collar shapes, pocket shapes or waistband shapes etc. from two different samples/garments and transitioned these design features into a totally new “original” design. I then went and told my customers that “my designer” (I never told them I did it) bought them in Europe.
A Point of View: “Creativity is not just for artists. It’s for businesspeople looking for a new way to close a sale; it’s for engineers trying to solve a problem; it’s for parents who want their children to see the world in more than one way.” Twyla Tharp
I would even “cross-hybridize” these ancient and discontinued samples/garments and create and design jackets that were inspired by a pant, or the other way around. I’d make two piece sets and related separates from one discontinued design. I shopped the infant and kids off price departments and used samples to inspire new and “original” styles for ladies: Juniors, Missy and Plus Size. I shopped thrift shops and the Salvation Army stores for inspirational ideas and samples/garments.
Ideas were, are, and will always be, everywhere. There are more “original” ideas than there is time.
Nothing and no one place, was sacred. I went where I could get inspiration for new ideas that no one ever saw or very few people came in contact with them. This article may be one of the most important articles that you’ll ever read. Learn the concepts, practice and have fun using them and, I know you’ll find the next big idea, concept or “thingymajig.”
Don’t forget us when you become rich and famous.
We’re Here: Let’s Begin
Mark Twain believed, insisted and wrote about, that there was no such thing as an original thought or an original idea, because every subject on this planet has been pored over, written about and analyzed.
Did he mean that originality itself is just folklore, and that no creative idea exists independent of another idea? The answer is both yes and no. Yes, there are “authentic” ways to express thoughts, ideas, concepts and philosophies, but no, the actual subject upon which these thought, ideas, concepts and philosophies are based on, are not “original.”
SideBar: As adjectives, the difference between “Authentic” and “Original” is that “Authentic” is of the “same origin as claimed” while “Original” is relating to the origin or beginning; preceding all others. As a noun, “Original” is an object or other creation (e.g. narrative work) from which all later copies and variations are derived.
Mark Twain Quote: “There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope. We give them a turn and they make new and curious combinations. We keep on turning and making new combinations indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that have been in use through all the ages.” From Mark Twain’s Own Autobiography: The Chapters from the North American Review.
Fast forward to the modern times and the year 2017: Shelly Palmer, the technology guru, was at the Las Vegas CES technology show in January 2017 and he reviewed the show and revealed the secret of creativity at the same time, with this perfect and intuitive comment: “You can see innovative combinations of ordinary technology resulting in extraordinary solutions.”
This is exactly what Mark Twain was talking about. This is exactly what this article is all about. This is my ‘Coalescing Transformation Concept’ that you’ll use to become a world renown prolific creative genius and, create the “next” big idea, concept or “thingymajig.”
Coalesce Defined: to grow together or into one body, coming together, changing into one new idea. Combine and form one mass or whole. Synonyms: merge, unite, join together, combine, fuse, mingle, blend; amalgamate, consolidate, integrate, homogenize, converge.
Transformation Defined: Make a thorough or dramatic change in the form, appearance, or character of.
The Bottom Line: My ‘Coalescing Transformation Concept’ is about having fun and being a creative explorer. It’s about positive expectancy and believing you’ll find what you’re looking for. It’s playing Make-Believe, What if and What about. It’s made up of various Success Support Subset Tools that are simple and unassuming yet, with an earnest effort to embrace them, they’ll prove themselves to be extremely compelling and effectual.
The preeminent prerequisite for successfully using this concept is the seriousness of your personal commitment to Unwavering Persistence, Clear and Open-mindedness, Incessant Curiosity and Positive Expectancy. You must be determined and relentless in respecting and keeping this personal commitment in mind.
A Point of View: “Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.” — Mary Lou Cook
ARTICLE ALERT: In addition to the information in this article, there are three other powerful Success Support Articles that will be transformative in helping you develop into a prolific, creative genius. These articles, possess powerful information that will make available and provide the support and energy needed to maintain an indomitable level of Unwavering Persistence, Clear and Open-mindedness, Incessant Curiosity and the Positive Expectancy, that you’ll need on your Creative Success Quest.
These articles are right here on Its All Possible and they’re entitled:
1- Information Part #2: Information Aggregation using ‘The p.e.e.e Concept’: Practice, Explore, Experiment, Experience.
2- Curioposity: Adopt and Use This and Expect Great Things to Happen.
3- Questions & Shredding: The Most Powerful Tool in Your Success Support Arsenal. Are You Using it the Right Way?
Onward and Upward
I’m going to discuss the Success Support Subsets, that make up the “Coalescing Transformation Concept,” in the aggregate and from an overarching point of view.
The reasons being is that every creative session that you initiate will be, and should be, distinct, varying and “original” to all other creative sessions. No two should ever be alike. The only piece that remains relatively stable during the creative sessions are the Success Support Tools, and their subsets, here in this article.
The Success Support Tools will remain constant but, the way you use and apply them will be modified and adapted to your particular creative session at hand. You’ll fill in the blanks, your blanks, as the creative juices heat up and start to pump out the ideas, concepts and answers that you’re looking for.
In addition, how you make use of them and, the order in which they are used, will always be in a state of flux and, this variability and versatility could result in a melding of tandem, commingled, intertwined or interconnected actions and use. The exciting notion about this, is that this, is where their power emanates from.
It’s their variability and their versatility that will make them a loyal, worthwhile, solid partner on any “Creative Divergent Jaunt” that you go on. Their variability and versatility, and your commitment to determined and relentless pursuit of trying to invent, create, or discover the “next” big idea, concept or “thingymajig,” will ensure a solid opportunity for you to be victorious on your Success Quest.
A Point of View: “Because of their courage, their lack of fear, they (creative people) are willing to make silly mistakes. The truly creative person is one who can think crazy; such a person knows full well that many of his great ideas will prove to be worthless. The creative person is flexible; he is able to change as the situation changes, to break habits, to face indecision and changes in conditions without undue stress. He is not threatened by the unexpected as rigid, inflexible people are.” — Frank Goble
As you begin to “Creatively Explore”, the first and foremost thing to remember, once again, is that there is no such thing as a “100% original idea.”
There’s only “old” ideas recycled, upcycled, down cycled, refurbished. There’s also the cross-market of new and old ideas, and the cross-hybridization of new and old ideas. These are all available for use separately , in creatively different combinations and, in creatively different ways, to create new and “original” ideas.
A Point of View: “I began by tinkering around with some old tunes I knew. Then, just to try something different, I set to putting some music to the rhythm that I used in jerking ice-cream sodas at the Poodle Dog. I fooled around with the tune more and more until at last, lo and behold, I had completed my first piece of finished music.” — Duke Ellington
Yes, that’s right, your success will rely on how well you learn how to recycle, rebuild and, how to “copy, tweak it and make “it” your own.” This is how you’ll successfully get to the crossroads of “original” and “a place where renown prolific creative geniuses are found.”
An “It’s All Possible” Point: The “Coalescing Transformation Concept” is a non-discriminating Success Support Tool. It makes no difference to what end the creative session you initiate, aspires to. It goes above and beyond creating concepts and ideas and, can adapt and enable the creation of new industries, new and unique businesses, new products, new ways to market and develop business and new ways to actualize anything and everything your creative mind, heart and aspirations hanker for.
A “TAKE ACTION” ALERT: It’s worth repeating . . . To make this all work at an optimum level, the most important ingredients that you must personally provide and bring to each and every creative session are: A Personal Commitment to Unwavering Persistence, Clear and Open-mindedness, Incessant Curiosity and, Positive Expectancy.
“There’s no such thing as “original” anything: This information should be welcomed and embraced by you as a very exciting revelation. It means that there are literally boundless “original” displaced ideas waiting for you to reach out and “bring them on home.” It puts you on an even playing field and beyond with everyone and anyone out there pushing and pulling for “the next best thing.”
This is your opportunity to take your place on the world stage and reveal yourself to be a master, prolific, creative genius, cranking out a steady flow of creative ideas.
But I Digress: The more “ideas” you generate the better. The great majority of ideas that flow, will fall into a category somewhere between being “useless” and being “worthless.” That’s why you need to let your creative juices flow unfettered and get every idea out on the table and never, ever, judge an idea as the flow is rushing forward.
A Point of View: “It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong, than to be always right by having no ideas at all.” — Edward de Bono
Use the tools I suggest here and in my articles to decide “the next big thing.”
Be slow and cautious to eliminate anything. Remember, these are your “original”, “never been seen before,” “next big ideas”, concepts or “thingymajigs” and, there are no paradigms, precedents, historic documents, books, articles or reviews, or any other sources of information, to be found on them.
Side Bar: Here we allow our minds to shift from intense focus to being loose and unfettered. When our minds are at ease and in a purposeful wandering mode we’re more likely to direct the spotlight of attention inward and let our thoughts take us where they want to go. Have some fun and wander mentally and physically.
A Point of View: “Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things” – Ray Bradbury
The “Coalescing Transformation Concept”
There are 4 components of the “Coalescing Transformation Concept.” This is the first component of the who, what, when, where, why and how of the “Creative Divergent Jaunt” that you’re going to go on and become a world renown prolific creative genius and, invent, create or discover the “next” big idea, concept or “thingymajig.”
Component #1: Success Support Subset Tools
1- “New &Old Ideas” refurbished redecorate renovate, recondition, rehabilitate, revamp, overhaul, restore, renew, redevelop, rebuild, reconstruct or simply “
2- “New & Old Ideas” recycled: Convert (waste) into reusable material. Synonyms: reuse, reprocess, reclaim, recover;
3- “New & Old Ideas” upcycled: Reuse (discarded objects or material) in such a way as to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original.
4- “New & Old Ideas” downcycled: Downcycling is a recycling practice that involves breaking an item down into its component elements or materials. Once the constituent elements or materials are recovered, they are reused if possible but usually as a lower-value product.
5- “New & Old” ideas Reinvented: change (something) so much that it appears to be entirely new.
6–The “Cross-Market Disruptor” Concept: Looking for inspiration and ideas in different industries from the industry where you want to create the next best thingymajig.
7-The “Cross-Hybridization Generator” Concept: Taking 2 or more totally unrelated situations, ideas, or thingymajigs and meld them to be able to invent, create or discover the “next” best idea, concept or “thingymajig.”
IMPORTANT NOTE: The definitions of the Success Support Subset Tools above, lean more towards the metaphorical and, are “not meant” to be taken literally. They stand tall and are ready to serve you and to be used by you, as precise and indestructible guideposts to follow, as you physically, mentally and visually travel on your ‘Creative Divergent Jaunt.’
Their “message” to you is: Be different. Create “Different”. Think differently. Create Differently.

ONE MORE THING: The Success Support Subset Tools are also meant to serve as “points of reference, landmarks or beacons” for creative warriors to effectively and efficiently move in the right direction towards, the “how and where”, when looking for ideas in all the “wrong, weird, and way-out” places.
JUST ONE MORE: If used seriously and diligently these subsets will be able to lead you in the direction of “how” and “where” the creative process should begin and then move beyond. The “wrong, weird, and way-out” places” are the “right” places when on your Creative Success Quest.
OOPS, ALMOST FORGOT: In some instances, the definitions overlap or are subtly different. That slight difference could be an obvious and powerful difference for some and, a barely perceptible difference to others. It all depends on what your “mind’s eye” sees and discerns. That is what creativity is all about.
Your view and discernment, and the influence your view and discernment has on your creative process, is extremely personal and self-serving and, that’s the way it should be during the creative process.
The Bottom Line: These 7 points of reference, landmarks or beacons, the 3 essential Success Support Articles here on Its All Possible and, the additional Success Support Tools to follow, are all guideposts to embrace wholeheartedly, for the directional and informational support that you’ll need and, that will subsequently lead you, unwaveringly, to victory on your Personal or Business Success Quest.

General suggestions on how to affect your “Creativity Flow”
A- Google this exactly as I have it written. Do not correct it. No kidding!!! Great stuff. Leave it alone. Just copy, paste and Google this: Head Into the Weird Places OR THE WRONG PLACES
B– Your state of mind on your “Creative Divergent Jaunt” should be:
One Point of View: “Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success.” David Joseph Schwartz
How big should your thinking be?
Create a vivid mental image of where you’re headed + Back it up with a bona fide “tangible visual” (pictures) + Now, dial it back & “Think Smaller” + Think Manageable + Slowly ramp it up + Magnify the vision a very small amount at a time + “Feel” the Comfort + Reach the earliest and lowest discernable “discomfort” level + You’re now “Thinking Big” at your level of minimum tolerable discomfort + Slowly raise this level and “see and feel” the “heat” + Take some time and get acclimated to that level and, if you can tolerate a particular level, have some fun and, keep raising it to new levels of “Thinking Big, Bigger and Biggest.” + You never know.
So, “How big should your thinking be?”
You should think as big as you comfortably can at any “thinking big” level but, all I ask is that you try to ramp up that “thinking big” a little at a time. You never know what you’ll “find” and besides, you’ll certainly never know if you don’t try. The Good News: You could always dial it back and try again another day.
C- Ask Questions: Follow this link to, Questions & Shredding, the most powerful Success Support Tool in your Success Support Arsenal.

E- Follow this link, RECYCLE , to great articles and visuals (“images” at the top of the page).

Component #4:Moving on
To make this all work at an optimum level, the most important ingredients that you must provide and bring to each and every creative session are: A Personal Commitment to Unwavering Persistence, Clear and Open-mindedness, Incessant Curiosity and, Positive Expectancy.
