Habitual Innovation

I thought the article titled “Can You Become a Creature of New Habits?” by Janet Rae-Dupree in the Sunday Business Section of The New York Times was an outstanding look at the process of innovative thought. You can read the article at this link:

Can You Become a Creature of New Habits

Here are some of the most meaningful quotes:

  • In fact, the more new things we try — the more we step outside ourcomfort zone — the more inherently creative we become, both in theworkplace and in our personal lives.
  • The first thing needed for innovation is a fascination with wonder
  • It’s that stretch zone in the middle — activities that feel a bit awkward and unfamiliar — where true change occurs.
