You were born to innovate! 7 innovation principles to change from crisis to opportunities
Updated: Jun 17, 2020
I’ve just recently stumbled over this quote again by the magical Wayne Dyer: "If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." And I thought: What a simple and true statement, especially in the times we’re currently in, right?
So as the nerdy solution seeker that I am, my next thought was naturally: Yes, what about changing perspectives? What about shaking things up a bit? What does the innovation mindset-approach-kinda-thing has to OFFER?
Here is my take on it: 7 innovation principles to start unblocking and going with the flow. To see and act on things differently and create opportunities.
They are my personal favorites, topped with life-enhancing glitter. And I really hope they work for and serve YOU.
Why 7 principles?
Because over the last decade, creating my own innovations and helping clients worldwide to build theirs, I found that the biggest block is always in the head and the way we approach our challenges: The beliefs are limiting, and the processes are outdated, which leads to a sense of overwhelm or even shut down. Understandably! But this snake habit, waiting for something to happen, just does not work in times of change.
Now. The bad news is:
Hardly ever someone on a unicorn or anything from outside will come to your rescue. I've tried this tactic, did not work for me ;)
BUT THE FANTASTIC NEWS IS:
You can always do something from within. Again, take in that Dyer quote: If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change...
Here are the 7 principles to help you JUMP not HIDE!
