Challenge your point of view. ---------- You tend to get told and think the world is the way it is — and that’s it. The message here is a simple one. It is not.
Like first impressions, our initial point of view is apt to be narrow. We see no more than what we’ve been conditioned to see — our stereotyped notions block vision and lack imagination. Yet, it is in our nature to be curious.
To discover and explore. To innovate. Every day new discoveries and innovation push our world forward and makes our life better.
Innovation is sparked by our continuous curiosity and often comes from exploring new perspectives. Maybe that is the most important thing to fuel innovation. To challenge your point of view. Learn to question assumptions and conventions. Dare norms and standards. Refuse to copy-create or even break patterns.
Think of what can be, not of what is. Think of the better, the
wonderful, the enriching and the exciting. Reimagine the possible.
However you experience that, once you have, it will help you (re)find your creativity and explore new insights. It will enable you to interpret things differently and unlock new frontiers. In business — and in life.
Here’s to the ones who encourage diversity of thought. Here’s to the ones who have no patience for the status quo. Here’s to you. Manager, teamleader, analyst, data-scientist, strategist, marketing lead, CEO, CIO, CTO or C-anyone. Look to the future, with the same spirit of curiosity that has always led us to innovation.
We live in a time when people have more reason than ever to be excited about the explosion of data and analytics. Soon everything and everyone will be generating data around the clock. A world of data will be available to us. And a world of possibilities to do good with it.
At SAS we strongly believe curiosity is at the heart of human progress. Even more. Curiosity is our code. We want to make it easier for more people to use powerful analytics every day, shorten the path from data to insight – and inspire new discoveries that drive progress. Within analytics, creativity makes the difference. It is the driver of new insights, the fuel for innovation.
