10 tips to be an effective design thinker

An observing eye and a constant sense of wonder (what is possible, not what is probable)
An empathetic attitude towards people’s behavior and habits (qualitatively-based through in-context observation and discovery)
A questioning mind that goes beyond the obvious
Patience to remain in the problem space until the right questions are identified (problems are opportunities in disguise)
A holistic approach to problem solving
A willingness to experiment and build (doing!)
A passion for team-based collaboration that puts the user at the center of the opportunity challenge
A willingness to always be sharing
An acceptance of the messy (design thinking is not neat)
A commitment to lifelong learning
