Think forward, you will always be prepared of what lies before you
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.
We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
We live in globalized world, a multicultural environment, an ever-changing economy and lifestyle. It is difficult to keep up with the speed of the innovations that take place every day in the world we live; notwithstanding the struggle it is really important to understand in deep those changes and be able to adapt to them. If we don’t renovate ourselves fast enough the world will leave us behind with no more chances of reentering in it. It is imperative not to miss any opportunity to improve ourselves, to learn new things and to understand the developments that take place in our surroundings. Only if we can deeply comprehend how fast the world changes around us we can have a chance to exploit all the possible opportunities that are created every day.
To be able to work in such an ever-changing and innovative environment we need to realize how innovation is done, and how it works.
Innovations are the result of various and complicated researches, that often lead to important and significant outcomes that revolutionize the world.
Economic advantages can be obtained through innovation; cost reductions, increased productivity and quality improvement are only some examples. Employ innovations is therefore one of the most important, and also difficult, action that an individual can take. Though being capable to do it can render ourselves more and more competitive in the job market, as we gain advantages over those who cannot keep up with it.
It is essential both to implement the innovation made by others, and also to innovate on our own, to create exactly what suits our needs.
The process of coming up with new effective and suitable practices is a very difficult one; it is mainly important to be ready to face failure and consider it as another beginning from which you can start over. Ideas are at the base of a new finding, without those you cannot create nothing new. The ability to formulate ideas is not for everyone, but everyone should be able to understand an innovative idea when faced with it. This is the only way in which you can use and exploit modernizations.
Chasing and understanding innovation is not enough, you need to do your own research, you need to set high goals and don’t be worried to fail, you should instead be worried about not even trying. This is the only way in which you can fully understand innovation and be able to work with it, by doing it. In this way you are completely able to recognize also what others are doing, how they are innovating and to be able to use what they found, what they created. Innovations are not only the one related to the creation of a new product or to the finding of a faster and cheaper way of doing things, but more important are the innovations that lead to the creation of new needs in the society – needs that people did not think they have – and there is where you can mostly exploit your findings.
Society might not be ready for the innovations made. It is the duty of the entrepreneur to make sure that new ideas reach the public in the best way. Sometimes good ideas can get lost due to the lack of capability of explaining them and people cannot appreciate their importance. It is important also to bear in mind that not everything is necessary, but a use can be found to everything. Be flexible. Some of the most important advances come from a change of perspective.
