I love finding insightful articles. There is one today From Knowledge Jolt with Jack on how breakthroughs happen .
Jack offers a review of Andrew Hargadon’s How Breakthroughs Happen: The Surprising Truth About How Companies Innovate , and this excerpt really hit home (clipped; bolding mine).
“Hargadon spends the first half of the book… to explain his thesis that breakthroughs happen via networks. The biggest aspect of this is getting “prepared minds” to interact the right way to develop the next breakthrough.”
Prepared minds. I like that.
If you’re participating in the world around you and open to ideas, it’s amazing how things start to link up. If you live and work in a silo, it will never happen. Focus too much for too long and all that results is the same old, same old.
Blogs are good for preparing minds. So are all the various opportunities in every community to meet and interact with the people around you. Share what you can. Be interested. It will come back to you in spades.
At least that’s what I’m finding.
