GET INNOVATIVE OR GET DEAD.
SHALOM! It is my faith that you are really great, flowing in the grace of greatness, drowning in extreme positivity. When you move in the grace of greatness, the world does not create you a situation room. I believe that you are dreaming huge, thinking BIGGEST, and ingraining the habits of leaderships into your DNA. Believe that you can fly, believe that you go far and beyond your wildest expectations. If you believe there is nothing to it.
ALWAYS thinking about you, your success gives me utmost joy, your strength lifts and moves me and so many destinies that you are responsible for. When destinies fail, destiny fails. So I have been really thinking wide to give you practical and powerful tips that will be the ultimate game-changing plan for your undertakings. INNOVATION is what its called. Capture it and become a superstar. Shun it and the world will tolerate you.
The best and greatest companies in the world that have had excellent performance consistently are those who are the most creative and innovative. These organizations don’t copy what others do; instead, they may use innovative ideas from others as a spring board to come up with a unique application, product, or service for themselves that others can copy.. They tend to distance themselves from the competition rather than compete with them . They are able to leverage their creativity for long- term success. They are running their own race. They understand that they are here to offer great products, be of exceptional help to their customers and have the time of their life doing the work that their hearts beat for. Purpose, passion, these are the heart of innovation. Are you in a career or are you living your calling? Innovation is a function of purposes, culture, competency, and leadership.
You can innovate like APPLE,SONY, DHL, SAFARICOM, GUCCI . In fact, all companies can be more creative and innovative no matter what their expertise, product, or service. When you apply creativity and innovation to every aspect of your business, you are able to stay ahead of a changing marketplace and the competition.
These are the 3 levels of innovation: Discovery: Invention: it’s something that is going to happen. If you don’t invent it, someone else will: Creation: these are things that only you or your organization can create! The key is tapping in to what those things are.
Here are the 10 stratagems for disruptive innovation.
1. SEE PURPOSE
Not just personal, why you live and what difference your presence makes, but also organizational. Create that overarching ambition that goes beyond the bottom line- profits.
2. LIVE MOTIVATED
When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
3. BECOME A KNOWLEDGE TANK
Read on diverse topics, far from your main interests. The greater your knowledge base and level of curiosity, the more ideas, patterns, and combinations you can achieve, which then correlates to creating new and innovative products and services.
4. CLEAR YOUR MAINFRAME
Defer judgment. Get rid of your biases. Innovation is all about perception. Your perceptions may limit your reasoning. REMEMBER: we see things not as they are but as we are.
5. READ IN BETWEEN THE LINES
See what others are not seeing. Hear the silent cries, the complains, the frowns, the joy, the pain. Create to fill the gap, to excite the longing of each one of us to be the best, to eliminate pain.
Keep it simple and positive. Simplify, simplify, simplify! If you cannot do it simply, you have not understood it.
7. ALWAYS BRAINSTORM
See problems as part of the solution. Excite your mind through brainstorming. Think 100 ideas daily, write them down. The thing about having great ideas is to have so many of them. Wake up next morning and brush through them. Some will be really precious.
8. KEEP FIT
Your health, your physical fitness, influence how alert, responsive and energized your brain is. Keep your body reinvigorated and fully energized, kindle your inner fire, galvanize your motivation, and see the genius that you produce.
Nothing is good that it cannot be better. Locate redundancies, work against processes and bureaucracy. Do not just break the rules, go beyond the boundaries.
10. EXECUTE BRILLIANTLY
A brilliant idea with shoddy execution becomes a mediocre event. A beautiful and great idea brilliantly done is the hallmark of mastery. Ensure everything is perfect, to the last, insignificant stuff.
I am watching for the next big thing, I hope it comes from you.
