The most common barrier to innovation that I hear about in my classes and talks is “But my boss won’t let me.”
Here’s a solution. Print this out, fill it in, and carry it with you at all times. Problem solved!
Actually, you don’t even need my permission to innovate – you just need permission from yourself. That’s all you’ve ever needed.
I’m working on an Innovation Decoder Ring and Secret Handshake, but for now, this will do.
Please start trying new stuff.
