TRIPLE III TIME: Let It Come To You

Patience and waiting for the right moment are NOT strong personality traits among those considered INNOVATORS.  In most instances there is a drive…a need to get the new concept out there for trial and error to determine if the creative idea/project/service is as useful and implementation-worthy as dreamed by the INNOVATOR!

However, in the world of real time one must accept the reality that most co-workers and colleagues can NOT read the INNOVATORS mind…and most have NOT gone through the same development thought processes to motivate the creation of the new idea/concept.  Hence the result is a collaborative “air” of reluctance to move everyone/everything forward and at the same time a sense of professional deflation within the INNOVATOR.

This week’s TRIPLE III TIME advice:  Step back and “Let It Come To You”.  If it sounds like I have personal and professional experience in this area…I HAVE!  As an INNOVATOR and having had the opportunity to interact with other INNOVATORS…the “Let It Come To You” strategy has many appropriate alternate progress benefits as you still maintain your new idea energy!  Think about these options:

  1. Use your INNOVATOR moments to “touch” and build on other existing project/service areas with a continuous improvement mindset.
  2. Continue to “feed” pieces of your new idea/concept with others in your organization…but not your whole innovation.
  3. Openly discuss the need for project/service improvement in your innovation target area on a regular basis.
  4. Do not stop researching for comparable unique concepts that could improve your innovation even before introduction.
  5. Finally, keep in mind that most often the harder you push an idea/concept that may be way ahead of its time…the more distance you might create among those who can make (or break) your innovation.

Be an INNOVATOR!  But understand that sometimes you have to “Let It Come To You”.
