Malcolm Gladwell says innovation is always In the Air. It’s a smart takeaway from his interview with Nathan Myhrvold and the work of his Intellectual Ventures company.
Innovation evolves rather than is invented. It’s the natural result of the science, culture, and technology that has preceded it. If you think your business concept is truly unique, you’re in the wrong business and need to work on that 10,000 hours. It’s been considered, if not at a minimum conceived, by many others.
Sorry, Thomas Edison, invention is NOT 5% inspiration and 95% perspiration. It’s more like .01% and 99.9%. As any good investor knows, it’s all about execution. So entrepreneurs, keep your NDAs, stop whining, and start building!
