In a world where mistakes are rarely tolerated, it is increasingly difficult to foster the courage of creative thinking. Those who dare to think differently are often frowned at for having ‘silly ideas’. It was a ‘silly idea’ that made the dream of the Wright Brothers come true in 1903 when they successfully sustained flight with a powered air craft. In 1961, President Kennedy had a dream of putting the first man on the moon and this was achieved in 1969 when Neil Armstrong was the first man to step on the moon. All BIG ideas came about from thinking differently and challenging how things could be done differently. Both these events started with defining the problem, whether it was “the flying problem” or “the first man on the moon problem” they started with a dream. The dream became a vision and was then followed by many proto-types, modifications, failures, rectifications and tenacity. Tenacity to see the dream come true. As humans we all have dreams but the difference between those who achieve their dreams and those who don’t can be defined as
· having a vision
· working a plan
· tenacity to never give up and
· thinking differently
I will ask you again, how do you connect the dots:
