I wrote those three words in that order for a reason... I think they represent a progression of sorts, and there are distinctions between the words.
"I have no private interest in the reception of my inventions by the world, having never made, or proposed to make, the least profit by any of them." — Benjamin Franklin, who brought us the lightning rod, bifocal spectacles, the Franklin Stove, and... in a large part... helped invent America itself!
"You have to have a big vision and take very small steps to get there. You have to be humble as you execute but visionary and gigantic in terms of your aspiration. In the Internet industry, it's not about grand innovation, it's about a lot of little innovations: every day, every week, every month, making something a little bit better." — Jason Calacanis, American Internet entrepreneur, angel investor, author and blogger.
"If you think good design is expensive, you should look at the cost of bad design." — Ralf Speth, CEO of Jaguar / Land Rover.
And, to cover all bases I quote you the words of one of my heroes: “I am enthusiastic over humanity’s extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuity. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top. I think that we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday’s fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem.” — R. Buckminster Fuller, inventor, architect and designer.
I support the inventors, innovators and designers of the world, and am committed to providing the best resources for them to prosper. I welcome your stories of success and insight for publication here!
