Creativity in Business- Day 115

Ecclesiastes 1:9 - That which hath been is that which shall be; and that which hath been done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

There have been billions of humans and quadrillions of thoughts. People shaping the first brick ovens, people creating the first ink, people creating the first airplanes, etc. There really isn't anything that's brand new. Maybe different variations of things, etc.

People are always trying to come up with ways to make money. They sign up for a franchise, they go to college with the hope of that turning into a money making endeavor, they take someone else's idea and try to compete with them. But in the end, it seems the best businesses are creative. They may take someone else's idea and spin up to a whole different level. (I.e. how the Facebook movie was portrayed.) Or the guys who come up with amazingly creative ideas like Henry Ford. (And even his product just developed on someone else's)

These businesses that bring new products to the market can be much harder because there isn't necessarily a well established market, but with the internet today people can literally learn about your product or service within seconds of you posting them.

Technology today helps those truly good creative ideas take off. Get creative, get smart, and get working.
