美国哈佛大学校长普西曾经深刻地指出,一个人是否具有创新能力,是“一流人才和三流人才之间的分水岭。”如若说,在创新尚属于人类个体或群体中的个别杰出表现时,人们循规蹈矩的生存姿态尚可为时代所容,那么,在创新将成为人类赖以进行生存竞争的不可或缺的素质时,依然采用一种循规蹈矩的生存姿态,则无异于一种自我溃败。而对于创新来说方法就是新的世界,最重要的不是知识,而是思路。《创新者的思考》教你创新的思维与方法,开启你的成功之路。

Are you ready for an empowering journey through the many paths to innovation?The Mind of an Innovator is a comprehensive guide to expanding the current limits of your thinking and to seeing opportunities where none existed before. The habits and techniques that have allowed businesses and individuals to make huge leaps are set out, reminding us that no matter what the nature of innovation is, complex or simple, we all have the capacity to innovate. How does emotional intelligence affect the quality of our thinking What are the unique thinking skills that create outside-the-box ideas How is the exciting new science of biomimicry a rich source of eco-sustainable innovation The answers to these questions are essential reading for business people, parents, community leaders and ordinary people who want to expand their horizons.

Picture a young man, holding a mirror in one hand and staring at his reflection, and in the other hand pointing a flashlight toward his face so he is looking at himself lit up. He is, apparently, quite engrossed. You have been watching him do this for several minutes.

What would you think? If this was a young child, you wouldn't think too much about it. Children experiment all the time as they explore their environments, so they sometimes do strange things. But this behavior is odd for an adult. You might think that this man is narcissistic, so taken is he with his image, or you might simply dismiss him as “not all there” and give him little thought.

Well, there was such a man, and many thought him to be strange. The American F.B.I. kept a 1,427-page file on his activities and recommended that he be barred from immigrating to the United States under the Alien Exclusion Act. He was a German citizen, and the F.B.I. alleged that he “believed in, advised, advocated, or taught a doctrine which, in a legal sense, as held by the courts in other cases, ‘would allow anarchy to stalk in unmolested.’” They were referring, of course, to his involvement with the Communist Party in the early 1900s.

Indeed, something seemed to be amiss with this man, but political affiliations aside, just what was he doing staring into mirrors while lighting his face?

Deep in thought, he was imagining himself riding on a beam of light across the universe and back, wondering about the speed of light and how it related to the concept of time. His name was Albert Einstein and these strange behaviors led to his Theory of Relativity.

As Einstein often pointed out, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
