On January 20, United States inaugurate its 45 President. The 2016 election was fraught with anger and anxiety on all sides. It seemed most felt there was something to fear from each opposing candidate. Alarmist sentiments do not stop once a decision was make, either. From social media to international news headlines, there are many dire predictions about what the next four years may hold. Real fear is uncertainty. 21. There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we are open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in fearlessness and the open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.-John Lennon

3 Enhancing your creative confidence

Confidence doesnt simply mean believing your ideas are good. It means having humility to let go of ideas that arent working and to accept good ideas from other people. When you abandon the status quo and work collaboratively, you sacrifice control over your product, your team, and your business. But creative gains can more than compensate. Again, you can start small. If youre facing a tough challenge, try calling meeting with people fresh to topic. Or break the routine of weekly meeting by letting the most junior person in the room set the agenda and lead it. Look for opportunities to cede control and leverage different perspectives. That is exactly what Bonny Simi, director of Airport planning at JetBlue Airways, did after an ice storm closed JFK International Airport for a six-hour stretch in 2007and disrupted airlines flight service for the next six days. Everyone knew there were operational problems to be fix, but no one knew exactly what to do. Fresh from dschool course, Bonny suggests that JetBlue brainstorm solutions from bottom up rather than top down. First, she gathers a team of 120 frontline employees together for just one daypilots, flight attendants, dispatchers, ramp workers, crew schedulers, and other staff members. Then she maps out their disruption recovery actions and challenges they face. By the end of the day, Bonny grassroots task force had reached new insightsand resolve. The Distribute team then spent the next few months working through more than thousand pink Post-its to creatively solve each problem. By admitting that answers lay in collective, Bonny did more than she could ever have done alone. And JetBlue now recovers from major disruptions significantly faster than it do before. Our own experience with open innovation platform OpenIDEO is another case in point. Its launch was scary in two ways: First, we were starting public conversation that could quickly get out of hand; second, we were admitting that we did have all the answers. But we were ready, like Banduras phobics, to take bigger leapto touch snake. And we soon discover benefits. Today, OpenIDEO community includes about 30 000 people from 170 countries. They may never meet in person, but together theyve already made difference on dozens of initiativesfrom, helping revitalize cities in economic decline to prototyping ultrasound services for expectant mothers in Colombia. Weve learnt that no matter what group youre in or where you work, there are always more ideas outside than inside. For people with backgrounds as diverse as those of Akshay, Ankit, John, and Bonny, fearof messy unknown, of judgment, of taking the first step, or of letting gocould block the path to innovation. But instead, they work to overcome their fears, rediscover their creative confidence, and make a difference. As Hungarian essayist Gyorgy Konrad once say, courage is only the accumulation of small steps. So do wait at the starting line. Let go of your fears and begin practicing creative confidence today.

Unlearning comparison

Creative thinking in business begins with having empathy for your customers, and you ca get that sitting behind a desk. Yes, we know its cozy in your office. Everything is reassuringly familiar; information comes from predictable sources; contradictory data is weed out and ignored. Out in the world, it is more chaotic. You have to deal with unexpected findings, with uncertainty, and with irrational people who say things you dont want to hear. But that is where you find insightsand creative breakthroughs. Venturing forth in pursuit of learning, even without hypothesis, can open you up to new information and help you discover nonobvious needs. Otherwise, you risk simply reconfirming ideas youve already had or waiting for othersyour customers, your boss, or even your competitorsto tell you what to do. At dschool, we routinely assign students to do this sort of anthropological fieldworkto get out of their comfort zones and into the worlduntil, suddenly, they start doing it on their own. Consider a computer scientist, two engineers, and an MBA student, all of whom are taking an Extreme Affordability class taught by Stanford business school professor Jim Patell. They eventually realized that they couldnt complete their group projectto research and design low-cost incubator for newborn babies in the developing worldwhile living in safe, suburban California. So they gathered their courage and visited rural Nepal. Talking with families and doctors firsthand, they learn that babies in gravest danger were those born prematurely in areas far from hospitals. Nepalese villagers didnt need cheaper incubator at hospitalthey needed fail-safe way to keep babies warm when they were away from doctors who could do so effectively. Those insights led the team to design a miniature sleeping bag with a pouch containing special heat-storing wax. Embrace Infant Warmer costs 99 % less than a traditional incubator and can maintain the right temperature for up to six hours without external power source. Innovation has the potential to save millions of low-birth-weight and premature babies every year, and it came about only because team members were willing to throw themselves into unfamiliar territory. Another example come from two students, Akshay Kothari and Ankit Gupta, who are taking dschools Launchpad course. Class require them to start a company from scratch by the end of the 10-week academic quarter. Both were self-describe geekstechnically brilliant, deeply analytical, and definitely shy. But they opt to work on their projectan elegant news reader for the then-newly released iPadoff-campus in Palo Alto cafe where theyd be surrounded by potential users. Getting over the awkwardness of approaching strangers, Akshay gathers feedback by asking cafe patrons to experiment with his prototypes. A cod hundreds of small variations to be tested each daychanging, everything from interaction patterns to the size of button. In a matter of weeks, they rapidly iterate their way to a successful product. We go from people saying, this is crap, say Akshay, to is this App preloaded on every iPad?

Does Covid-19 discriminate?

Findings of the present study support use of MAC-RF as a brief, theory-base instrument for assessment of clinically relevant fears relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although MAC-RF was developed for use in the context of this pandemic, it could be administered to assess fear experience in other public health emergencies, especially future pandemics during which causative agent spreads rapidly via human contact and is associated with mortality and much uncertainty. Modifications of MAC-RF for this purpose would be simple, with changes in wording of relevant items. MAC-RF was simultaneously developed in three languages and its versions in Italian, English, and French are present in the Supplementary Material to this article.


Introduction

Schimmenti, Billieux, and Starcevic propose a theoretical framework to account for fear experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. They argue that pandemics might generate fears that involve main psychological means of grasping reality. Accordingly, bodily, relational, cognitive, and behavioral domains are involved in fear experiences during pandemic, with these four domains of fear being interrelate. Furthermore, model proposes that four domains of fear are not structured in a hierarchical manner, and that instead, they are organized around dialectical structure: bodily domain involves fear of the body and b fear of the body; interpersonal domain involves c fear of others and d fear of others; cognitive domain involves e fear of knowing and f fear of not knowing; behavioral domain involve g fear of action and h fear of inaction. Table 1 summarizes types, characteristics and domains of fear experience according to Schimmenti et al. S 12 theoretical model. This theoretical model of fear experiences might contribute to our understanding of origin and maintenance of fear-Related symptoms during the COVID-19 pandemic. Base on the described theoretical framework, we developed a brief instrument, Multidimensional Assessment of COVID-19-Related Fears MAC-RF. The name of the measure reflects the fact that it is aim to assess four dimensions of fear described in the theoretical model. MAC-RF could be used for several purposes. First, MAC-RF could serve as a screening instrument for clinically significant Fears, which would indicate the need for thorough clinical Assessment if screening positive. Second, MAC-RF could be used to identify specific fear experiences that would help tailor preventive and treatment approaches. Third, this tool could serve the purpose of monitoring changes in level of fear over time and measuring treatment response. This article aims to present the development and preliminary psychometric properties of MAC-RF.
