According to Mike Vance, early head of creativity at Walt Disney World, there are two ways of being creative in business: Thinking up new things or re arranging old things in new ways.
I bet countless people even this morning are thinking to themselves, possibly in the shower where we do our best singing and thinking, how they can improve that one little thing they observed yesterday. Therein lies the secret in how new businesses are created. It’s an near obnoxious drive to make something better. Even a slight incremental improvement.
Assuming there are plenty of things that need improving and we can all see them clearly in the shower, what’s keeping us from doing them?
You realize, I am sure, that this is not JUST about starting a new company. It’s about acting on your own abilities to make your current job better.
