PARC Forum

There’s scads of research that shows, on average, at what age peak productivity occurs in various scientific fields. Other dubious research shows that bumble-bees can’t fly and that on average, any single sperm can’t make it to the egg. Let’s not get caught there.

Our creative energy, as an individual, a team, a company, and even as a culture goes through cycles. If you have too little awareness of what causes your fluctuations, you are less likely to cause them to flow in your favor. Bring along your favorite mistake to share. That’s where we’ll start.
