The Flip Side Of Being An Innovator


Executives – even smart, talented executives – live in the present.

They see current problems.

They see what the future holds only if they solve today’s problems.

Innovators see a different future.

They live in the land of what if?

What if there was a new way to search the web?

What if everyone with a car was a taxi?

What if a guest room was a hotel room?

While most leaders try to solve their company’s current challenges, Innovators are trying to tweak a future they see in their mind’s eye.

The biggest challenge of being an Innovator isn’t that others can’t imagine a future that the innovator sees.

The biggest challenge is that the innovator can’t imagine the present others see.
