Experiential Learning 14 - Can we be creative all the time?

Necessity is the mother of invention - a saying that suddenly made more sense as I toured some places in the US of A for the last two weeks.

One thing that struck me as I went around at least three states in the USA was their ingenuity in leaving 'mess' out of every equation of work.

To pick up just one area - making tea Indian style - boil (not brew, mind you, brewing is too sophisticated for the run of the mill Indian palate) the silly tea leaves in water and milk till you get the right flavour and colour.

The Indian does not add tea leaves to the concoction in the sauce pan. Instead he adds the teabag (sans the thread, the cardboard tab and the staple pin). Indians will know exactly what I mean. The effect is the same, only there are no messy tea leaves to dispose of - just junk the tea bags, no strainer to clean, no tea leaves clogging the drain etc.

This reminded me of the TQM adage - every problem is an opportunity - to invent.
