Come On America - Let's Innovate, I Mean Big Time!

January 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 133

Well, we sure hear an abundance of comments in the media about how important innovation is to our forward progress and economic prosperity in America. Indeed, there is a bit of truth to that, thus, my calling to promote innovation and also call upon others to do the same. Perhaps, I am preaching to the choir, as you are reading this article on innovation and you chose it for a reason. Still, innovative thinking is a way of life and positive reinforcement of that thought process must be constantly nurtured.

In the end all the talk about innovation, won't bring it, it's up to all of us to walk that talk and pony up with original ideas and thoughts, each and every day. Having been an innovator, inventor, entrepreneur, and designer all my life, I've come to the realization that to be a true visionary you have to live your life on your terms, ditch the status quo, question all that is, and challenge your own mind as well. It's not that anyone can't do these things, regardless of their intelligence quotient; it's that all too often we tend to go with the flow and settle on the approved methods, and completely submit to authority.

You see, we get stuck in the proverbial box to the point that eventually we stop thinking. Innovation at that point will be beyond your mental capacity and reach, as you will become the human version of a domesticated house pet. I am begging you not to go there, do not become yet another domesticated human. We need your mind running at optimum, your country needs you, and you might be that one-in-a-hundred million who changes the world, and brings the species more than just an incremental advance forward.

Thus, I hope you will join me in promoting innovation and perhaps write some articles on this topic, read some books, and be part of the future, we must move this ball down the field. I hope you will sit back and think about what I am saying, and then take those thoughts anywhere you like without limitations. I wish to thank you for reading my article here and I congratulate you for your desire to innovate.

Now, we must press on, and go turn on all the rest of the people on this planet, so how or rather somewhere along the line, they were turned off and stopped thinking. That's just not going to work in the future, so let's lead the charge to a new tomorrow. Please consider all this.
