ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a speech delivered by British comedian John Cleese at the President's Breakfast and National Truck Equipment Association Annual Meeting in 2011. According to him, the unconscious mind is more inventive and creative than the conscious mind. He stressed out that people should not try to hurry the natural and relaxed feeling when creating because it makes the mind less creative. He also cited the two great thinkers of all time, namely inventor Thomas Edison and physicist Albert Einstein.
