Every man takes the limits of his field of vision to be the limits of the world. — Arthur Schopenhauer

Effective innovation is, at its heart, like 2 funnels placed end-to-end. Ideation is divergent, serving up both the mundane and the fanciful. Analysis and execution is convergent, finding out feasibility, tweaking things so they work, and making stuff happen. If you didn’t try to have the random thought, you’d be stuck in a world of incremental innovation. How much fun would that be?
