Innovation & Making Ideas Actually Happen.

Thomas Edison said it best, "Genius is 1% inspiration, and 99% perspiration." For the creative professional, we believe that ideas are simply sparks in an ether of possibility. But the sparks often disappear as quickly as they happen. For a spark to catch fire, you need something flammable.

At Behance, we believe that ideas gain traction through discipline. Some serious discipline is required to make ideas happen. There needs to be a process to CAPTURE the action steps behind the ideas that are generated. There needs to be a sense of ACCOUNTABILITY in every creative team. We also see the need for VISUAL ORGANIZATION of projects, deadlines, and the overall business objectives.

Going forward, Behance will be sharing some insights on the topic of "making ideas happen" and what we've come to call "Productive Creativity." As one of the hosts of FastCompany's Innovation Discussion, Behance will be focused on strategies to push ideas into action.

    I agree, Scott. I was running aroung yesterday at my school, and I encountered a difficult situation, but instead of falling short of my responsibility to my job, and agree with a disgruntled worker, I put myself in someone elses shoes , gave positive advice and even gave the worker some good news to lift their spirits. I felt so much better and constuctively, she had something new to think about. I am a single Mom, but my resources are many, I am thankful that I can tap into them. You are so correct, it's all about our actions. Remembering to look at those who have less than us. Thankyou, Jennifer

    wow, inspiration is only 1%, i'd have put at around 10%; perspiration might not be necessary if you're in a position where you can delegate tasks.
