Promote Ingenuity , Reap Invention

As a motivational speaker, comic, I speak a lot about the necessity of standing up and sticking out in a crowded marketplace . There are numerous ways to do that, but if I had to choose one word to clarify it I would choose creativity. The modern world is loud , and lots of us are merely attempting to scream noisier. It isn’t noisier that draws their focus .To stand up and stick out, you have to be distinct . Distinct is not better or enhanced . Unique is brand-new.  Different is invention – the art of creating.

It’s the way we distinguish ourselves from the other people . It’s how we earn the sale . It’s how we achieve the supreme customer experience. It’s how we motivate our workforce . It’s how we lead. It’s the way we discover how to do more with less. It’s the way we give an unforgettable speech . It’s the way we pitch our merchandise to a deafening market .

Creativeness , innovation, out-of-the-box thinking – these are not emerging concepts . We toss these phrases around a whole lot. But many of us simply talk about them as a substitute of engaging in them. Creativeness is the key to innovation , yet the most vague resource because we believe it’s about discovering innovative people who were blessed with that ability. We subscribe to the lie that we just aren’t among those imaginative types.

Creativeness is not a unique reward bestowed upon a select handful in restricted quantities. Imagination is available in large quantity for all of us – an endless supply. Merely take a look at our kids . They’re created with a great measure of creative imagination and exploration and astonishment – which we over time make them learn to bury.

So I repeat : Everyone has the means to be innovative . We are born with it. And when we get older most people are educated to neutralize those behaviors and patterns. We only have to find our way back to it. A few have a lesser distance – but we can all make it happen – and it’s simpler than you imagine. You just need someone to demonstrate how to do it. You don’t need to rely on someone else to be inventive for you. It’s a skill that you can practice and create to add to your work portfolio. And this is a talent you will enjoy exercising because it’s entertaining . It’s entertaining to view creation in progress . It’s exciting to observe people try creative ideas without fear of failure. It’s exciting to watch people take title of something they have created .

We should create a business atmosphere that welcomes , educates , cultivates, and practices inventiveness on a regular basis . We need to look at the mindsets and actions and things that stands in the way of thinking outside of the box. We have to close our eyes, take a deep breath, and jump – and trust the process – without fear of falling.

It’s not expertise that sets you apart. It’s inventiveness . Ready for change? Ready for a fresh start? Are you ready to unlock the door to the greatest tool your people can have? Let’s go. Let’s create something awesome .
