On the subject of innovation

Latest posts by Rich Sloan (see all)

I was absolutely fascinated by this article in the NY Times. It reveals how the brain works and how habit patterns are literally carved into our brains in the form of neural pathways. It went on to describe the fact that we can significantly strengthen our mental capacity by consistently trying the same things in new ways and taking on altogether new challenges, which helps blaze new (parallel) pathways in the brain.

It underscores for me how important it is to GET OUT and get involved in stuff. It kind of seems like the more you do and explore, the more innovative thinking you’re capable of  – a slightly important capability for us entrepreneurs.

Bottom line on this – if you truly want to be an innovator, start innovating with the way you conduct daily life.
