Walt Disney devised this sequence of roles to get the best creative thinking from his team. Try on each role in turn to spark your creativity:

  • Dreamer: Let your imagination soar and explore all the possibilities. No limits, no boundaries.

  • Realist: Put your feet back on the ground and consider the feasibility of your idea. Can you actually do it?

  • Critic (originally called the spoiler): Be your own harshest critic – if you don’t find the flaws in your idea, your audience will.
