As the economy sours, you need a little innovation to pull your company through. No cause for alarm if your workforce isn't composed of natural-born innovators. There are at least a dozen principles that offer insight to encouraging creativity.
12 Principles to Spark Innovation
1. Any concept imperfectly created will be limited by the magnitude of its imperfection.
2. A vision born in the heart and beheld with clarity in the mind must, in obedience to the law of creation, be created in the world of form.
3. If you can create without doubt, you are no doubt a creator.
4. If you see the glass is half-empty, you are seeing the circumstance not the dream. To transcend the circumstance you must see what's not there.
5. True commitment begins when we can reach the point of not knowing how we can possibly go on and decide to do it anyway.
6. To set a goal is to limit infinity.
7. When you are tested ask why. What purpose does it serve? What am I learning here? Sometimes an apparent setback or disappointment serves the greater purpose of galvanizing desire or birthing a greater success.
8. Act as though you already are who you want to be, are already doing what you want to do, and already have what you want to have.
9. Money isn't everything. It's a resource, one of many. All resources to support you come from but one source—our infinity.
10. Decide what you need and ask for it. Imagine your every request being fulfilled.
11. Give your best to every client, whether small or large. You never know to whom you are offering your gifts. If you did, you’d be humbled.
12. Perfection is a state of being where everything already exists. Be in it when you give birth to new ideas or innovate.
