I was reading this new book THE INNOVATORS DNA-Mastering the Five Skills of Disruptive Innovators.

While reading, For the first time I came to know the meaning of -“INNOVATION”. If you search this great Word-INNOVATION in any dictionary or Wikipedia, You will typically find same definition –Innovation is the creation of better or more effective products, processes, services,technologies or ideas that are accepted by markets, Governments and society”.

Well I don’t think it really needs to be accepted by Markets, Government or any society.Does a hardcore Innovator bothers about its acceptance of his Innovative idea  in society? Take an example of Steve Jobs, Generation’s all time Greatest  innovator. Steve Jobs, in fact challenged the present acceptance of Society. He challenged the Status quo. Steve jobs once meditating was getting disturbed. He found the noise of the computer fan distracting, So Jobs questioned the need of the fan in personal computer. “Does it really needs the fan?” “Why does it really needs a fan?” Since computers need the fan to prevent it from overheating, no one from us bothered to question this. Obviously to remove fan from computer, you will need to get different type of power supply which generates less heat.

Challenging the present , Jobs found hard-core Rod Holt from Atari crowd, convinced him to replace it with new type of power supply and made Apple -II, the quietest and smallest personal computer.Closely Observing you might see, Jobs questioned the present product or process. He didn’t bother the acceptance of society. Innovators question, observe , experiment there Ideas. They have a dream to change the world , bringing new ideas , new products , processes to the world, without bothering what world will reply to his innovation . They have courage to do so. They are willing to embrace a mission for change and take risks to make change happen. In short , they are constantly increasing their ability to think and generate innovative ideas and execute them. By constantly, observing , questioning the status quo, present scenarios, they just focus on their cognitive mind, associate their diverse knowledge and discover the innovative ideas.
