Actions to become an innovative person
Actively seek out opportunity. Non-innovative people wait for opportunities to find them.
Be Constantly Curious
Be curious every day. Constantly look to discover the “why” or “how” behind things. Non-innovative don’t want to dig deeper.
Embrace a future-oriented mindset. Look to what’s ahead. Don’t get stuck in the past.
Hug failure. It’s your friend. Failure makes a great teacher and will lead you to something important. Failure is not an end point. It’s a beginning.
You don’t have all the answers. Work to find them. Get input from others. If you spend too much time trying to show “You’re right”, well, you’ll be wrong, a lot.
Practice Innovation Exercises
Schedule innovative exercises into your daily life. Strengthen your innovation muscles. Too many times i’ve seen a non-innovative person ignore their innovation muscles and get frustrated in the 3 p.m. brainstorm.
Learn Your Innovation Strengths
Learn your natural innovation strengths and unlock your everyday innovator. You’ll better understand how you innovate. Everyone innovates differently. Learn to innovate your way.
