Son, listen to the start-up in your heart

Father_and_Son_BW boston.comDear Son,

Please take a moment in your daily rush to discover a melting pot of various reads and borrowed to my own expertience: 6 ‘mantras’ that came along the innovation track.

I enjoy meditate over them regularly: because I feel on the same page, they shine as a light house, sometimes a shelter where I can find calm and serenity, and the right lift when my battery goes flat.

I’m happy to share them with you: enjoy, take care of them, and most of all, mould your own.

  1. Find what you love to do: follow your heart, people will buy what you’re committed in;
  2. For things to become a reality, dream them first: imagine, innovate with meaning, fill your design with identity; even working in a terrible place, you can start-up a new place in your head;
  3. A strategy is required but in all likelihood, it’ll be wrong: prepare to seize unanticipated opportunities, and build on situation potentials;
  4. Connect the dots, unleash autonomy and activate collective intelligence: the whole is greater than the sum of the parts;
  5. Create time for what counts for you: list the ‘don’t’, the things that you clearly want to avoid in the future;
  6. Happiness is a mix of courage (take action where you can influence), humility (openess, ‘stay hungry, stay foolish’), and generosity (let give if you want to receive).
