Innovation! What leads to those break throughs ideas that really help society? Hard work and well embracing your inner child is one thought. In the following TED talk Adora Svitak talks about what we adults can learn from children.
It would probably be better put to say that we adults need to remember the important things in live. Like imagination, creativity, and discovery. Those things society has taught us to undervalue. The only problem is those things lead to innovation. Along with hard work!
Enjoy the talk. Also notice that Svitak uses a Prezi rather than a PPT deck.
