The Innovator’s New Year Resolution
Posted by Plish on January 10, 2017
That’s the percentage of people that aren’t keeping their resolutions after 2 weeks.
What I’m going to propose a is pleasant and powerful resolution that Innovators of all types have implemented in their lives.
Great discoveries, great designs, innovations of all types, occurred when people saw the significant hidden in the insignificant. Be open to the unexpected and don’t belittle the insignificant!
In fact, the history of the human race is replete with people who have humble, insignificant beginnings, or were viewed as insignificant people because of the color of their skin, the country or caste of their birth, their religion, their sex – they were viewed as people who weren’t worth paying attention to. Yet, these people changed the world.
Pay attention. Look deeply at the insignificant. Don’t just cast it away and call it “waste”,”lesser”, “pointless”, “negligible”, “inconsequential”.
APPRECIATE EVERYTHING – AN INNOVATOR’S RESOLUTION
Only when you appreciate everything will you see opportunities for improvement, for elevation, for partnerships, renewal, growth, friendships and more. Missed opportunities will be few and far between.
AND WHEN IT’S NOT THERE, GIVE SIGNIFICANCE
Often the insignificant is only insignificant because it hasn’t been given the opportunity to be significant. Empower. Elevate. Understanding the insignificance enables you to create significance.
BE AN INNOVATOR
Design a better world. People are yearning to be more, experience more. You are the one to provide it. It starts with open eyes, an open mind and an open heart.
It starts with you…
