Six Questions that lead to Innovation

These six innovation questions are:

What could I look at in a new way? (Steve Jobs looked at the computer in a new way, leading to the Mac and the personal computer revolution.)

What could I use in a new way? (Paleolithic humans turned fire from a scourge into a means of cooking, heat, light, and protection.)

What could I recontextualize in space or time? (The Sumerians moved language from spoken to written form, expanding its power and reach.)

What could I connect in a new way? (Thomas Edison connected the light bulb to the electrical grid, leading to electrified cities.)

What could I change, in terms of design or performance? (Nearly 3 million years ago, the world’s first “innovator” transformed a simple rock into a stone hand-axe.)

What could I create that is truly new? (In 1776, American colonists created the first “intentional” nation, based on specific abstract principles.)
