New skills- a new year
With the New Year and the birth of 2012, most people view the holiday as a reflective period, as they transition into a New Year. The New Year for most people is about stopping or quitting something they don’t like and want to change about themselves, or it’s the creation of promises for an improved and better you.
So let’s look at this subject as a way to potentially make 2012 not only a great year, but potentially one that will change your life, your so called destiny and life’s path.
You can’t talk about innovation without talking about change and creativity. At the core of innovation lies the need for improvement. That’s where the change
comes in. At the core of innovation lies creativity. Creativity is clearly the
catalyst for change, innovation and improvement.
But innovation is not about stopping smoking, quitting biting your nails or a way to support the promises we make to ourselves in the form of resolutions. So keep reading to learn more about what we mean when we say: innovation and change your destiny and life’s path.
To do that, we need to dial in a little deeper into innovation, sometimes referred to as an idea. An idea is useful only to the inventor unless it is offered to the public. If the idea improves some product, process or service for the public, then that idea transforms into an innovation.
An innovation can be big or small. Brand-new, or just a bit different: it doesn’t
matter. An innovation can be clearly complex or seemingly simple. Innovations are often thought of in terms of technical achievement, but can also be a design or process improvement: how you do things. A new product idea, something that solves a problem for example. The type, industry and style of innovation are irrelevant: an innovation’s impact determines its qualification.
By now, you are probably asking, innovate, me changing my life, my destiny by innovating. I don’t see it, or this isn’t me. And hey, by the way, how many people really develop breakthrough innovations that can change their lives anyway?
OK, I can agree with these truths about true breakthrough innovation, but let’s go a little further to get our arms around innovation as a basic skill set that can
work for you before we move on looking for the next quick fix or shiny push
buttons that just don’t exist. Along the way I will also show you how to innovate at work to grow personally and professionally…maybe even get you promoted by being seen as a Fast Tracker and go to person.
New skills- and three types of innovation
- Sustaining innovation- these are incremental variations, small and minor changes to a theme or project
- Breakout innovation- those that significantly increase the level of play with an existing category.
- Disruptive innovation-something just short of break through innovation: yet large enough to cause a disruption to the current way of doing things
New skills-one simple action can change your life and your business-my personal story as an example.
So I’m playing golf on a really hot afternoon: mid 90’s and I can’t seem to drink enough water. I’m in the middle of a sand trap 165 yards from the green when I look down and see a putter in my hand. If you’re not a golfer, you may not realize that as a big problem, since a putter is used for short distances and rolling the balls on greens.
So now I realize I am probably dehydrated. I get through the round and start thinking about how I can drink more water to avoid this problem in the future. Everyone knows water is bland and not really fun to drink. But when I think back to times when drinking it was easy, I remember the tastes and flavors of water that some eateries served: lemon water, cucumber water,
even basil water.
Next was my AHA moment when I realized the common denominators were all flavors. To make a long story short, I jumped both feet into the world of flavoring and developed the first natural flavor drops to enhance the taste of water specifically then on to tea, coffee and dairy products.
The brand is Yum Drops Flavoring and it is now the number 1 natural flavor concentrate and flavor drop on the internet, with over 50 flavors, serving 23 countries and with 165 sales affiliates. True story and a real life example of how innovation can change your life and affect your life’s path and with some mental energy and diligence, you can do the same. It surely changed mine.

New skills-the power of innovation
Innovation is actually an inherent talent. That means everyone has it. Surprisingly many of us don’t think we have this skill. Let’s look at the power of innovation. If you’ve ever marveled at somebody’s creative prowess, guess what, you can create and innovate too. It just takes time. Everyone is born creative. The box of crayons in kindergarten was not limited to those who possessed potential; because the truth is, everybody has potential.
You know how long it took to learn to ride a bike, or drive, or to never commit the same mistake again? It’s the same with innovation. It takes some practice and a lot of time before this skill set comes easily-when you want it, at the snap of a finger.
“A single harmless snow flake can cause an avalanche.”
Our next post will teach you the keys to innovate and once you have them, you can open the doors to them anytime you want, in any area of your life: work, play, whatever. Along with that, I will even give you the insight and strategies to make 2012 a year of innovation, improvement and change, so that even you can in fact: change your life.
