In The Pocket should add a warning on The Shift packaging: “Warning: highly addictive tool, only to be used when open to radical innovation. Frequent users can display atypical, out-of-the-box thinking and might come up with next-gen award-winning business ideas. A significant competitive edge and/or a complete transformation can ensue.” Or in layman’s terms: MUST USE
