I really liked this talk by Keith Yamashita on is it worth daring to be great. There a couple of things that resonated with me, first the need to resist the natural forces of society’s need for the status quo. Second, to maintain a childlike attitude full of curiosity and imagination. Third, the idea that innovation is about making people’s lives better and not about a companies bottom line.
His talk could’ve just as easily been called ‘Dare to be different’. Watch it
