This past summer we created something called the Bits + Blocks Lab, focused on the blockchain. We’ve been working on it since December of 2014, so I’ve learned quite a bit about Bitcoin and the blockchain.
But this is not a post about the blockchain. One of our summer interns, Shuya Gong, who worked in the lab on a design team, wrote a great piece about the insights her summer gave her into the innovation process. I won’t publish the entire thing here, but here’s a link to a post I made on my LinkedIn Influencer page.
Here’s an overview of Shuya’s seven insights on innovating:
- Don’t Get Ready, Get Started
- Fail Early and Often
- Have the Creative Confidence to Design New Worlds
- Innovation Loves Urgency
- Work With Your Friends
- Choose to be Inspired
