Taskmaster

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.

Examples:

  • 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.
