I don't normally consider myself to be an innovator, that usually takes a special kind of energy that I just can't always tap into. I do have my moments, brief and sporadic, of brilliance - and I owe much of that to what I learned reading The Innovator's DNA by Jeff Dyer, Hall Gregersen, and Clayton Christensen.

- Keeping negative company.
- Being selfish and egotistical.

Be on-guard with your thinking:
- Your thoughts determine your character.
- Be careful of your thoughts - they may break into words at any time.
- Don't waste your thoughts on those who do not hunger for them.
- The first person you lead is you, and the first organ you master is your mind.
- Discipline your thoughts to remain steadfast in what you know is right.
