HOW ARE CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION RELATED TO BEING A MAVERICK?
“When your approaching life or anything there’s a path in front of you. OK – here I’ll relate it to hiking. I love hiking. I love walking the trails. I love even more exploring places, getting to engage in the process of exploration. So exploration can happen just by going to a new location and walking on that trail, but more exploration is possible when you can go off the path and start to look for new locations and so but it’s not about getting away from what everyone else has done; that’s trying to be a maverick and there’s no point to that. The path is totally fine, but you get to explore new things when you go off the trail, and there’s a value to when you’re doing that, and when you’re approaching life more creatively when you’re charting. So innovation’s a by-product of that kind of approach. When you go off path you’re inevitably creating a new little trail, so that’s the innovative part, a new path has been forged. And you can choose to strengthen that path and to make it something actual or not but by virtue of going off path something new is arising – So that is innovation.”
