I can wholeheartedly agree with your statement about riding the wave. People follow the wagon and never think for their own. What ends up happening is that nothing new comes out of those people. We are told the same stuff over and over again when we are young, so we can’t think for ourselves. We just repeat “new knowledge” as if we just thought of it when in reality, it’s old stuff that sounds new. The only way for innovation is to step away from the crowd and to think for yourself. Don’t follow that wave and don’t be afraid of an idea that may sound dumb. It may actually end up doing amazing things for the world!
