Here’s the thing all successful people know…

Their success is different than your success.

Regardless of what you may have read, copying the tactics of “successful” people is no guarantee that you will be successful.

Success is not in the eye of the beholder.

Success is in each one of us.

It’s personal.

Insist on being yourself.

Never imitate.

If discovery lies at the intersection of artistry, technology, and commerce…

Innovation is what happens when the three collide.

It may sprout from desperation as Amy Tan suggests…

…or may be conjured by the muse.

Some say it is combining existing ideas… Cellphone + iPod = iPhone

Some say it’s subtracting something… Eyeglasses – frames = contact lenses

In any case, innovation doesn’t arrive at all.

When you give it some thought…

you run into it.
