Connecting the Dots

It is the reasonable person who stops and sees, connecting the dots and not trying to manipulate reality to fit your vision. The unreasonable try to force change where it is unwelcomed, or, more often, stick to a belief increasingly at odds with the world’s reality. The reasonable person looks at the world and tries to connect the dots others don’t see – but the dots are there. They may seem unrelated to most but seeing what most miss is innovation’s foundation. It is connecting those dots and seeing how things can connect – not forcing something that isn’t there or ignoring what is and how it has changed. It is only afterward that a new idea seems reasonable. To begin with, it usually seems unreasonable. Don’t be fooled and believe you must force change.
