Mikael Eriksson Björling's article, 5 key steps to creating an innovation mindset, outlines the fundamental approach one should take when striving for innovation. It starts with a determined attitude and ends with action. 

He explains that going beyond what comes naturally is essential; “Innovation is a question of mindset, and creating that mindset precedes everything else. In my opinion, it’s the innovation mindset that overrides the aspects of human nature that are often holding back innovation in large organizations.'

Therefore he sets out five clear steps: embrace openness to change, foster creativity, think big ideas, be courageous in your actions and pursue them quickly.

I’ve included a link to the article in the show notes:

I’ll wrap this episode up with an appropriate quote.  This one is from Seth Godin.

"Change is not a threat. It's an opportunity. Survival is not the goal. Transformative success is.' - Seth Godin

This quote from Seth Godin encourages us to embrace change and strive for transformative success. It is an inspiring reminder that the goal of life should not simply be to survive, but to strive for success that leads to meaningful transformation. We must be willing to accept change and use it as an opportunity to achieve something greater.
