Moonshot Thinking“Moonshots" are the incredible, seemingly impossible, ideas that change our world.Dr. Gray, RT Alderman's amazing Music and Band Director, excitedly shared Moonshot thinking with me this year. An avid learner, I immediately began to research this new concept, a concept that I hadn't heard of before. Immediately, I was hooked. In his 1962 speech at Rice University, John F. Kennedy stated: “We choose to go to the moon this decade." Despite the barriers and obstacles, Kennedy believed that humanity was going to accomplish something incredible.Moonshot thinking involves embracing the chaos and uncertainty and changing the world (hmm... does this sound familiar?) It's about better thinking: thinking bigger; thinking smarter and thinking faster. It's about thinking different. Moonshot thinking is only limited by imagination. Moonshot thinking is when “you choose a huge problem, such as climate change, and propose to create a radical solution to the problem using disruptive technology. For this to happen you have to abandon the idea of creating a 10% incremental improvement and focus on a solution that will bring ten times (X10) improvements, or solve it completely" (Alayon)Moonshot Thinking FrameworkMoonshot Thinking Moonshot LaunchMoonshot LandingTransform Yourself“Moonshots live in that place between audacious projects and pure science fiction" (Villafuerte). When I listen to our students' and our staff's learning, their conversations, their research, their brainstorming and their ideas, I realize that moonshot thinking lives and breathes at RT Alderman. Each and everyday, I humbled and in awe of being part of the moonthinking!Brenda LewisLeading the future | Moonshot thinking by Peter Fisk at the GeniusWorks.Com.Understanding Moonshot Thinking by David Alayon.
