The Courage To Innovate

Synopsis:

Innovative thinking requires we move beyond what is known and certain, to what is untried and unfamiliar. As a species we are forever pulled in polar opposites directions: pulled one way by the desire to stay safe within our chosen comfort zone; and pulled the other way by the desire to move beyond our known selves, and shape the world we live in. Innovative thinking is a risk. Innovative thinking takes courage. It requires we put aside our fear of failure, stick our head above the parapet and say to the world: 'Here's something new that I believe in', not knowing if a hail of bullets or applause may follow, or maybe something even worse - the sound of disinterested silence.
