A few years ago, I bought a book on this topic titled ‘Borrowing Brilliance – The Six Steps To Business Innovation’. Here is a link to the book www.borrowingbrilliance.com

I believe it has been clearly established that curiosity does not kill cats. I'm suspecting dog lovers created that myth...you should view that saying as anti-cat dogma.

Instead of dissing curiosity by repeating that anti-cat saying, especially to children - give a curious person a pat on the back!


 

Courage is the 'Prime Enabler'. It enables self-analysis, self-confidence, curiosity, creativity, & innovation.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

It takes courage to face adversity. It takes courage to face criticism. It takes courage to face change

Children are born courageous and independent-minded. But, often, that is discouraged.

It takes wisdom to re-build courage.

If you want people to bring your ideas to life, show an interest in theirs.

Sure, of course, you're not biased and you know full well your ideas are superior!

But don't let that stop you from listening to other people's ideas from time to time. With listening being such a rare commodity, little expressions of attention and interest go a long way.
