Have you ever seen something in passing— a poor translation, a machine that doesn’t quite work, an inefficient business practice— and thought, “I could do better”? The feeling lingers for a few minutes, perhaps a few days, but eventually it fades as you go about your life. There are so many other things to do; it’s not your job to do that as well. What would happen, though, if you were to pursue it?
You would certainly be in good company. History is full of entrepreneurs, inventors, musicians, artists, and so many other brave souls who chose to push forward with their visions of something better, to leave the safety of the familiar and take a risk for the sake of improvement.
The reward for successful innovation can be great; it is often not the hardest-working person, but the one most able to devise unique solutions to problems, who will rise to the top. Many of the very best businesses are constantly looking for ways to increase productivity, incorporate new and better technology, and serve their clients better and more efficiently. Olympic athletes use the latest training methods to help them exceed the previous records of human achievement. The cream of the crop in nearly any field is rife with innovators.
There is no sense in hiding the truth: innovation is difficult. To borrow a quote from Star Trek, you truly must, “boldly go where no one has gone before.” Still, in light of the potential benefits your hard work can yield, it is well worth the effort. So the next time you think, “I can do that better,” I encourage you to nurture that thought and see where it leads.
