All inventors and innovators share two key characteristics – creativity and persistence. In order to better understand others and ourselves as inventors, we must take a closer look at what these things really mean.
Creativity – the use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work.
Persistence – firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.
By tapping into our inner creativity, we enable ourselves to brainstorm and think of original ideas. Is there a problem you’ve wanted to solve? Can you think of a better way to do something? Once we channel our inner creativity and think of an idea, it then comes down to persistence. Will you give up easily or decide it’s okay to fail your way forward? Do you believe enough in yourself and your idea to keep going?
The lesson is to keep believing in yourself and your idea! We know it’s possible to turn ideas into reality and create “a better way” for two reasons. Our professional team at Davison works with real idea people every day to help move their invention ideas forward. Also, simply take a look back throughout the years to remember the many great inventors and innovators who’ve done it before us. Use their powerful words to motivate the inventor and innovator within yourself.
“Nearly every man who develops an idea works it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then he gets discouraged. That’s not the place to become discouraged.”
– Thomas Edison
“I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success.”
– Nikola Tesla
“The only true test of values, either of men or of things, is that of their ability to make the world a better place in which to live.”
– Henry Ford
“Energy and persistence conquer all things.”
– Benjamin Franklin
