What makes someone innovative? Is it something that you are born with, or can you develop it over the time and with practice?
The guys from Think Simple Now decided to explore these questions, and they compiled a list with the 7 habits of highly innovative people. The first one is:
1. Persistence – Innovation involves more than just great ideas. We need faith, hard work and a laser sharp focus for the end result to keep persisting for our vision in the face of roadblocks. We tend to see the end result of a creative idea in awe, but what we don’t see are the actions, hard work and persistence behind the scene to make the vision a reality.
The other six are:
2. Remove Self-Limiting Inhibitions
3. Take Risks, Make Mistakes
5. Writing Things Down
6. Find Patterns & Create Combinations
