Start National Inventors Month with these Five Quotes

National Inventors Month - Davison

National Inventors Month is underway and we’re starting this month-long celebration off with some motivation – after all, it is Monday!

So, what exactly does National Inventors Month entail? The month of May is reserved for the celebration of invention and creativity, which began in 1998 by the United Inventors Association of the USA (UIA-USA), the Academy of Applied Science and Inventors’ Digest magazine.

At Davison, we take great pride in our clients who had ideas and believed in them so much that they turned to us to help make their invention dreams a reality. For us, we treat every month like it’s National Inventors Month as we champion the idea people who continue to create and innovate every day.

The purpose of National Inventors Month is to promote the inventors whose ideas have served as real contributions to the world.

Today, to kick off our celebration of all things inventing, let’s take a look at some of the motivational quotes from perhaps the most prolific inventors in history!

“There is no substitute for hard work.” ­ ­- Thomas Edison

“When one door closes, another door opens; but we so often look so long and regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” - Alexander Graham Bell

“The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.” – Steve Jobs

“When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.” – Elon Musk

“Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.” – George Washington Carver

Now that you’ve read the words of some of the most notable inventors, do you feel inspired to make today the day that you begin your inventing journey? For every inventor, it takes one step forward outside of their comfort zone to pursue that idea that’s been living in their mind for quite some time.

All it takes is a little courage, a lot of creativity and a healthy dose of perseverance to one day turn your dreams into reality!

Client Invention Shows QVC Viewers a Better Way to Make Brownies

PushPerfect 8 Brownie Pan - QVC

In case you missed it last Wednesday, Davison client Bobby’s PushPan Brownie Pan was featured on the popular QVC segment, “Kitchen Unlimited with Carolyn.”

Bobby came to Davison with his idea for better brownies. His innovative pan would later be licensed to our friends at Love Cooking Company, who were also excited for this brownie innovation to debut on leading video and ecommerce retailer QVC!

It’s always exciting to see one of our products in the limelight!

While on the show, the product went by the name “PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan with Slicing Grid” and was shown by longtime QVC guest host Marie Louise Ludwig, alongside host Carolyn Gracie.

This wasn’t Ludwig’s first time showing off a Davison-licensed product. In fact, she showcased the Pinata Nonstick Cupcake Pan last September.

In last week’s segment, QVC host Carolyn Gracie and Ludwig both demonstrated the innovative PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan and how it can be used to make just about anything.

For example, brownies with ganache on top or crispy cereal treats to satisfy any sweet tooth and some other savory options like pull-apart pepperoni cheese bread and cornbread are just a few delicious choices.

It didn’t take long for Gracie to proclaim that the PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan had become one of her favorite baking pans!

The pan comes with its own slicing grid that can be used during or after baking.

“You get perfect squares every time!” said Ludwig, noting how you can leave the grid in during baking to make sure each square has a chewy edge.

“And, nobody fights because they got the bigger or the smaller pieces,” said Ludwig.

Now, thanks to the PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan, baking just got a little bit easier!

You can get your very own PushPerfect 8” Brownie Pan on QVC.com for $27.50 right now. For a bite of inspiration, pick up yours to try a Davison client’s inventive idea today!

Thomas Edison Encourages us to Snooze our Way to Creativity

Thomas Edison - Sleep and Creativity

We’ve all been there before – you’re burning the candle at both ends and are getting closer and closer to creative burnout. You’re clinging to the mantra, “No rest for the weary” as you rapidly begin to lose steam.

Though we’ve heard time and time again that you should get no less than seven hours of sleep each night, in this day and age with the busy schedules that we all juggle, getting adequate amounts of sleep each night is nothing short of impossible.

Thomas Edison agreed. Yes, the Thomas Edison, the famous inventor and idea person believed that his invention of the incandescent light bulb would liberate people from the constraints of sleep.

That’s why Edison was an advocate for naps.

But, not just any nap – power naps. Now, Edison wasn’t a supporter of sleep for lazy purposes. Rather, he encouraged people to get their rest for the creative, productive and overall work-ethic benefits that resulted.

Idea people, listen closely. If you’ve been struggling with a creative block, we might have found what you need to jump over this hurdle and never look back. The answer is sleep!

Though Edison seemed to be very proud of his lack of sleep, it was said that he only got as little as three to four hours of sleep each night. But, Edison did take power naps.

All throughout his property were napping cots. You could find these cots in his library and even in his laboratories. Though he had cots for his power naps, he wasn’t afraid to rest in some peculiar places, like under a tree in the middle of the day!

So, why did he like naps more than a full night’s rest? Edison believed that his napping helped counterbalance the intensity of his labor. Most days, he would take a nap or two. When he woke up from his quick rest, he was reinvigorated and ready to tackle the next problem.

The lesson to be learned here is that sleep is a necessary piece to the innovation puzzle. Sleep allows for you to reignite your creativity, to see things in a new light and to build on ideas that you previously struggled with. Rest is essential in helping us reach and exceed an even higher standard than we set out to attain on our pursuits for creative excellence.

Burned out? A good rest can help.
