1. Innovators Will Be Surfing
I am approaching 2013 like a surfer floating in the ocean scanning the horizon. I am looking for the next big innovation wave to ride, trying tomake sense of a churning sea of one wave after another, counting to see which is the seventh wave, which in surfing lore is usually the best toride. I worry that there is such an intense focus on innovation as a corporate panacea that as a practitioner I might choose a wave that is too bigto ride. I have to remind myself that the smaller waves will still get me to the shore and, more importantly, in one piece.
