The basic traits of innovators

  1. Non-conformism

New ideas, albeit correct, sound crazy at first. That’s why you need to be a little crazy, eccentric to come up with original ideas, and a sociopath to sustain the level of commitment and dedication necessary to spread them or make them a reality. Only a weirdo sees things the way they can be rather than the way they are.

  1. Curiosity

To come up with revolutionary ideas you need to connect the dots, sometimes these dots are far apart. Curiosity drives the will to collect dots; the more dots you accumulate, the higher the opportunity you have to stumble on a meaningful connection.

That’s all, folks.
