...and so it begins...

As Thomson Elite's CEO Steve Buege flies in to Australia today to meet with clients and prospects in Sydney, and to beat the drum at the local user group meeting in Brisbane next week, news is breaking that the traditional Elite competitor Aderant is about to announce what could be a significant blow to the original business case which originally brought Elite to the APAC market some four years ago.

No Time For Innovation? Well, it is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time...

Here is a cute posting on Innovation which uses themes from Chuck Palahniuk’s novel Fight Club to make you think about how you are approaching your daily work and your own personal approach to Innovation.

After reviewing it, we certainly think that "Tyler Durden's 8 Rules of Innovation" are worthy of a read and your consideration.

With rules including "No fear. No distractions. The ability to let that which does not matter truly slide", "Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken" and "This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time" there is just enough content in the post to make you think and possibly challenge the way in which you approach your projects and your prioritisations.

The last two are our personal favourites - especially the "buying a MacBook Pro and an iPhone doesn't make you creative" comment and the thoughts on urgency (are you really living the life you imagined?). The link to Foolish Productivity is also worth a read, as is the introduction of Lou.

Enjoy, and thanks to the Pony for the link.
