We are our own worst enemy

How many times have you heard that? Indeed it true, we are our own worst enemy, especially when it comes to neglecting to think about or do certain things that we don’t want or like, somehow we almost instinctively steer away from that which we don’t like or want. However, it’s not always ideal, especially where its things we have to deal with, then simply avoiding them does not mean they don’t exist any more, or will go away, we have all I am sure practiced this behaviour, when we start using avoidance, or denial, then we are in fact just poisoning our mental well-being (or capacity).

If you desire true innovation, then you should be familiar with the concept and what it really has to offer.

In strategic circles, the one with the most “innovative” thinking trumps any one’s brilliant plan.

We’ve all heard the saying “perception becomes reality,” now if that statement was true, what will it take to make all “innovation” become reality too, and if it is that easy, why aren’t we seeing a lot of innovation or inventive people around?

I hear a lot of talk, everyone is abuzz with innovation, “we have to be more innovative people”, oh and the classic – “think outside the box”, who started all this madness, event at schools teachers are teaching “innovation” and how to be “inventive”.

We hear the word “innovation” everywhere, it is spreading like wild fire, especially in our media and business press, suggesting the word is becoming “a cliché,” (or used out of context) and just implying some form of change, and is used more as a buzz word, a fashion statement, than to actually advance very specific ideas.

“Innovation” – has also become big business; it has created a new economy; franchises, schools, institutions even, and lots of  literature – over 250 books on Google books with innovation in the title; consultants are popping up all over, people even get appointed with the title as innovation consultants, officer, office, thus making millions of dollars, even in advising, it’s become businesses. Just like global warming it s creating jobs and a sub culture.   Yet, I still have to see something  that’s truly jaw dropping, one invention that will convince me it exist, that will convince me it has merit, or can be taught, or harnessed like energy and has place in business theory.
