We tend to criticize and discard ideas that did not originate from us, consciously or unconsciously. Beware of this and always look at ideas and concepts around you with an open mind and judge them by their value, not by their origin.
Breakthroughs often rely on the open-mindedness of innovators to notice something new, unexpected, and intriguing. Extensive cross-industry-research can inspire us to establish new links between previously separate components. No happy accidents per se, but a good way to break through the limitations of your current research and spot some surprising correlations.
Planning is essential for innovation – the pull of the ‘urgent, not important’ of routine tasks is just too strong.
It’s time to take action and re-tune, plan more time for the important long-term projects, because these are the ones that will help your company to remain relevant.
