What does the future hold in store for us? A lot of change, says Paul Schumann, in The Innovation Road Map Traveloque weblog. To prepare for the future, we must be creative, he explains:

“Creativity will provide the discoveries, inventions, innovations, and improvements that will fuel global economic growth. Creativity will be needed by us to overcome the national economic problems that we find ourselves in, to face ever increasing worldwide competition, and to meet the challenge of a time of rapid innovation. We must become students of the future so that we may plan to meet these challenges. We must be sensitive to the present so that we may be able to detect those factors that will have a bearing on our future. And we must be willing to change; to move our interests to that which gives us the highest return for our investment, keeping in mind at all times the broadest definition of ourselves. This is imperative in a time of change for it is only within broad concepts that we can adapt to change.”

Paul then goes on to quote some of history’s greatest thinkers on the subject of creativity, and demonstrates how it is imperative that each of us unlock our inherent creativity, if not for our own good, then the good of our future world.
