Bottle as Structure and Thinking Grids

Creating structures for yourself within which you operate is something that happens all the time. Consider when you do particular things at certain times of the day, give yourself an amount of time to complete a task, or ask someone to choose their ‘”favorite” movie. These are all structures that we use regularly but may take for granted. These two tools, Bottle as Structure and Thinking Grids, help you practice breaking down the process of creating structures. In particular, these tools ask you to be purposeful about how you bring two things together to spark new ideas, find relationships between things, edit or limit your options, and more.
