Original Thinking

Trending question for the day…

Is there such a thing as an original thought? Or idea? And how do you become a thought leader? Forbes suggests the phrase may be over-used, and rarely earned, and this article (Shel Israel, 3/5/12, Forbes)  gives you insight into why (and how you can become one). We posit anyone can become one, a person who exists mostly through original thinking, and that the real challenge is few people dare to go there. Yet plenty of evidence suggests (by virtue of the attention innovators and candid authentic voices such as Jack Kennedy, Steve Jobs, or Barack Obama receive), original thinkers resonate above all others because their innovative truth is recognized as authentic and achievable.

What’s your original thinking, and where will you share it next?
