For the next 60 days, I'm going to post a concept a day on how to think like a fool for creative problem solvers (who have a playful sense of humor). Last year I posted a rough list of 30 Ways to Think Foolishly based on over 25 years of research studying, performing, and teaching the art of foolery. Since then I've refined, edited, and added to the list, which has grown to 60 concepts that fit under 5 categories. My sources include Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, The Marx Brothers, Bugs Bunny, Wile E. Coyote, Sufi teaching stories, new and old Vaudevillians, theatre and circus clowns, writers and visual artists, inventors, eccentrics, my own performance work, and my own foolish life.
"The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool."—Shakespeare
