On innovation

“The mind of the child is an essential part to being creative. It’s actually there to counter-balance wisdom. Wise people listen and ask questions. Children are very much in the moment. So, they have an ability to see things for what they are. They’ll walk by something novel, and instead of processing something as, “that’s just that crazy person who’s wearing panty hose on their head,” they think, this is really funny, I didn’t know you could do that, and then they’ll come up with something and it ends up leading to something else. Its an ability to be very zen, very Buddha-like and very curious. They are also intensely curious, and lack embarrassment, which leads to a more open mind towards exploration. They’ll just go ahead and crack things open, and learn from it to quench their curiosity.”
