Recently I’ve been looking at the world of quantum physics and the world of inventions and innovations, especially through the 17th to the 21st century, when a lot of innovation and major strides took place.
Interestingly enough, 6 common themes shine through of the truly innovative thinkers with them being:
An Open Mind
A Curious Mind
The ability to ask profound simple questions
They followed the anomalies that others dismissed
Find the right words to explain what they discover
It’s always fascinating learning about new things and ideas, especially stuff that rarely sees the light of day, and though others may already know about the things you’re only just discovering and learning, doesn’t make them any less important to the person learning them for the first time.
Entropy (Order and Disorder) Energy – Jim Al-Khalili
And from watching Jim Al-Khalili’s work, it been great learning about innovative thinkers that rarely see exposure in the mainstream and yet have had a major impact on our modern world.
And imagine if our education system encouraged the above 6 aspects into peoples learning, what an amazingly different world that this would be, and what new discoveries and ideas that are just waiting to be explored and examined.
For an open curious mind that ask simple profound questions, combined with intuitive thinking and following the anomalies that others ignore and can present their findings in an easy to understand way, are always the thinkers that change and influence this world
