There’s a British TV show called Taskmaster. It’s creative and hilarious at times.
Celebrities are given a task and often a time limit of sort and they have to perform the task.
- Create an image using a GPS device to track your route.
- Get an egg as high as possible without breaking it.
- High five a 55 year old.
- Make the biggest splash.
- Destroy a cake in the most impressive way.
What’s so interesting is that each one of the five contestants can interpret the instruction in their own way, producing a high variability in outcomes and some truly creative solutions.
It’s a metaphor for any task in life – there isn’t one way to do something right and the definition is not watertight in most cases.
You can get creative and achieve a superior outcome to the normal, obvious way to do something.
