Do You Believe?

To Those Who Say, “It Can’t Be Done”

“If you want something new,
you have to stop doing something old
                                                 -Peter Drucker 

First Timer?
I saw an episode of “Family Feud” the other night and one of the answers the audience gave was “Old School Pager.”  Ten years ago, almost all business executives had to carry a pager or cell phone to take calls while out of the office. At that time you may have even had a Palm Pilot or other Personal Data Assistant (PDA) to take notes and keep your calendar.  If you listened to music you carried an iPod as well.


Then the world changed...  In the spring of 2007, Apple introduced a device that combined the cell phone, the PDA, the pager and the iPod into one single device.  They even included internet access so you could research while on the go.  We know it today as the first iPhone.  There was much excitement around the announcement that Steve Jobs made in the public unveiling… but there was plenty of skepticism, too.


“No one’s ever done this before!”


“People won’t carry all this information in one place…it’s too confusing!”


“Why don’t they leave my phone alone?”


And... “What if it fails to catch on with the public?”


Scott Stissel wrote, “They say that Apple Innovator and Pixar founder Steve Jobs would only become more emboldened when people told him that something couldn’t be done.."


This reminds me of a friend that I worked with in 1995 who was discussing our organization having a web site to publicize our location and business.  “I think we need to wait a few years to see if the internet will catch on.  It may pass away like CB radios!” 


It sounds funny today, but if you are old enough you remember the push back the doubting public had to the internet and business websites back then. 


 Just 10 years ago, the.....

   A Reinvention Story
Each month we feature a story about reinvention on a personal level. These are ordinary people, like you and me, who used circumstances, skills or inspiration to change their lives and the world around them. Perhaps they will inspire your reinvention. Enjoy!

Although his career stretches back half a century and includes over 100 films and countless TV programs, he gained true fame late in his career.  His story of reinvention inspired (and amused) many.


The son of a Canadian Mounted Policeman and the brother of Canada's future Deputy Prime Minister, he was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, in 1926.  He came from a home where his father physically abused his mother. He wanted to escape this environment. He chose a career in acting.


By the mid 1970’s his career was limited to brief guest appearances on television shows and no major motion picture jobs.  But he was known as a notorious off-screen practical joker and cut-up. 



He wasn’t given the opportunity to show off this “strength” until he was cast as a dead-pan doctor in...


Reinvention Nation Blog
My wife works as my assistant and business manager.  She uses a wall calendar to mark my speaking engagements, business deadlines and personal dates on for both her records and for me to keep track of visually.

She needs one that she can erase information and place updates when times or flights change (as they do frequently). That is hard to find, for some reason and her father’s desk calendar, while convenient, won’t allow for a full year viewing in one glance.

This week I received a package in the mail...

"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower."   
-Steve Jobs

"Exploration is the engine that drives innovation. Innovation drives economic growth. So let's all go exploring."  
-Edith Widder
"We begin to change the world when we stimulate long-term prosperity using technology. There is not a problem that's large enough that innovation and entrepreneurship can't solve."
-Naveen Jain

"If you flee from the things you fear, there's no resolution."
-Chuck Palahniuk
"Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow."
-William Pollard
"Companies have too many experts who block innovation. True innovation really comes from perpendicular thinking."
-Peter Diamandis
