Once I saw an article about innovation, I read it more than ten times for not only my poor English, but also its creative thinking about innovation, which makes me think a lot.
At first, you will be unclear about his attitude to this kind of habits, or even this kind of thinkers. But as long as long as you listen his explanation, you’ll find his way, which is likely to put you into a more than marvelous world. Actually, what attracts me most is his beginning, that he set an example of his childhood when he’s a dementia children.
The dark side of Ninetendo, he put such a Photo Warp to make fun of his very young. And after that, he put out his first point: originals are late to the party. Here is new word, procrastination. Usually, we’d like to regard this word as something bad and always try to get rid of it or fix it. However, look the example he set, Da Vinci took 16 years to complete the Mona Lisa, whose fame has spread all around the world since its birth date.
And compared with the other masterpiece, a brief stroke, which might takes its owner not longer than ten minutes, people will never know who did it and are unwilling to know. So, Mona Lisa takes 16 years, the brief stroke takes 10 minutes, this is apparently the difference between the original thinker and the common people. Here my understanding is, maybe the problem is not in the time they take, but in the attitude they hold to the objectives. Therefore, innovation is not ridiculous thoughts, but ones inspiration based on steady work and correct attitude.
For the other two points the Ray Bans glass put, originals feel doubt and fear, originals have lots of bad ideas, I think it is all about the thinking. Only when you watch too much, read too much and think too much, that you can have so many feelings as well as bad ideas, or good ideas. What he wants to tell us is, innovation is closely connected to your minds. So, before being a smart man, be a thinking man. To bravely doubt and think, just like Martin Luther King, Jr., who gave a speech named I Have a Dream, which influenced a whole era in American. And it is his doubt that helps him to look for truth and finally become a great man fighting for human rights as well as black people. This inspires me so much. During our work in company, we also should have such spirts. Accordingly, we all know that innovation and original thinking is never generated groundlessly, and never an empty hole invited the wind. Instead, it needs us to pay time, attention, energy and everything we could donate on it, that we can at last make a difference and have a keen understanding to this world.
