The other day I was having lunch in a city food hall and I overheard the person next to me saying something that made me stop and think.  It took me a while to understand the full implications of what this person said.  "we are trying to pay off our mortgage to be debt free - then I'll be able to work part time and do the things I want to do."

I want to be debt free - wonderful, admirable, positive goal.  This will take discipline  and self control.

Reason for this goal - to work part time and do the things I want to do.  Awkward pause.  What you are saying is that the work that you do is not what you want to do.  You are just doing it for the money so you can pay off your mortgage.  Is that cool?  I think that it is sad.

In business, innovation is the catalyst to growth. The famous economist, Joseph Schumpeter, argued that industries must continuously innovate with better or more effective processes and products to survive. Businesses need to continuously look for better ways to satisfy their customer base with improved quality, durability, service, and price which is derived from innovation.

 

Business competitiveness and survival is directly linked to the organisation’s ability to innovate.

The Simient team of Adrian Launchbury and Alex Aspinall - in conjunction with Gavin Bott from Queensland Health were placed 3rd in the Hacking Health event.

In my last post, We Do Our Best,  I wrote about how we should remember that everyone is trying to do the best that they can .  To approach life in a positive cooperative way.  Sometimes, even when people are doing the best that they can, their efforts are destructive. 

A practical example of this comes from the early 1800s in the tragic story of Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis.  Dr Semmelweis worked in the maternity clinic of the Vienna General Hospital where there was an extraordinary level of "chid bed fever".  1 in 10 women giving birth in the clinic ended up not going home.  The folklore around this story has women giving birth in the street outside the hospital in preference to going inside.
