Okay, I've promised to fill in the archive with posts for all the days I've missed in the last couple of months. It is my intention to do that, and so I'm projecting ahead on the number of quotations I'll include from the middle of October to the middle of December in order to catch up. I'm figuring it will be 24 quotations, including this one from Sir Winston Churchill, which I just heard from author Frans Johansson at ASAE & The Center's Great Ideas Conference in Orlando:
I think these words should be something of a mantra for daily innovators. It can be hellish trying to persuade people to embrace innovation. But when things get tough, we cannot simply give up on our efforts. Doing so will leave us in right where we don't want to be: frustrated, disappointed and without having made any real progress on the work of innovation. So my advice is to not lose sight of the big picture. The naysayers will try to distract you, but in the long run, the daily innovators will prevail!
