Innovation occurs oftentimes when necessity happens to approach mistake. More than not, some of the best creations and inventions came about by accident. Being that as it may, the world in many ways are connected by ideas, customs, cultures, and of course the millions of inventions that enhance and grace the earth daily. Necessity, in which innovation is partly ignited, serves as a catalyst for one to fulfill or satisfy means of survival, whether they are basic or urgent. Mistakes, the other component of innovation, is a learning process where one is subject to trial and error, which, in many cases, have resulted in discoveries or a new alternative of some sort. These two factors combined are the basis of innovation simply because innovation is designed to not only make livelihood more efficient, resourceful, and productive so that one is not limited, but it also provides a dimension for anything new that lies ahead. Lastly, aside from necessity and mistakes approaching each other, being creative with your passion fits the characteristics of an innovator. Inaccuracies occur even with things you are skilled and passionate about, but learning, and effectively utilizing those inaccuracies produce greater outcomes. Big or small, luck or loss, flair or flaw, the art of innovation is seeking new ways in making yourself and the world a better place.
