We aren’t all mind readers; we can’t say that we are all the same as well. There are those who are truly better than others in some things but not into everything. Like a person who really runs very fast and joins marathons and runs races, maybe those guys aren’t that good in math. We all have our strengths and our weaknesses and if we are smart enough we should be banking on those strong points than force ourselves to do good on work which we are weak in. our creativity and innovation truly shines in those areas where our talent can be exploited, yeah sure we also need to work on the field which we are weak in but wouldn’t society benefit from us if we work in our best?
To be honest people nowadays seem to only think of one goal, earning money, not everyone mind you but most. Companies only want to earn profit, they see something that works, they train everyone to mimic that brilliant idea and exhaust that technique till it’s ineffective. Now how about we let those employees work on the same techniques but don’t limit them? Would that work?
Of course it will, probably some of these people who just blindly follow into those who are in position to lead have their own ideas on how to better the process that is already used. Maybe these people know how to innovate, now to use creativity to boost production. We aren’t truly the only ones smart in this world, and if we are open to that idea, we can then pool up our knowledge and have a better world.
So just the fact that we don’t know people as much as we know ourselves leaves us to think that, maybe that guy you pass by in the hallways every morning knows more than you do about your job. Maybe it time you get to open your mind to the idea that conducting a study once and a while, asking around people how to make something better, which in truth is just a front for you to know more about how to upgrade your work techniques, is what you need. Companies that do not know how to innovate are the ones that slowly lose their business and customers. A business can’t lay stagnant, they have to grow and flow with the tide.
The more you think about it the more you will understand that even though your company is doing good today, if you don’t upgrade you ideas, if you don’t try to be more creative, you will lose a lot more that you think. We have to move with time, play it how a smart man will.
