I’m All for Innovation!

Working beside some of my Christian professional friends, particularly from WIPRO, an IT company, I’ve gathered a few quotations on innovation that have inspired me and are worth sharing with you. For instance, Einstein was convinced: “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” It was Bernard Shaw who submitted: “Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire; you will what you imagine; and at last you create what you will.”innovation.jpg

Theo Levitt had some remarkable things to say about innovation, such a: “Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things.” And again: “Just as energy is the basis of life itself, and ideas the source of innovation, so is innovation the vital spark of all human change, improvement and progress.” Levitt also noted that: “The future belongs to people who see possibilities before they become obvious.” Here are a few:

You have all the reason in the world to achieve your grandest dreams. Imagination plus innovation equals realization. – Denis Waitley
If you can dream of something, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse. – Walt Disney
Never innovate to complete, but to change the rules of the game. – Davis Adeife
The principal mark of genius is not perfection but originality, the opening of new frontiers. – Arthur Koestler
Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurship. The act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth. – Peter Drucker
The best way to predict the future is to invent it. – Alan Kay
The challenge isn’t to keep your eyes on the big competitors. It is to pay attention to the innovators. – Dave Duffield… 

My favorite statement on the possibility and basis of innovation, I have proved for myself, comes from a radical claim in the Bible: “Anyone united through faith to Jesus Christ gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons!” – Saul of Tarsus, who became the Apostle Paul (2 Cor. 5:17)
