  2. 2. "You will never find time for anything. If you want time, you must make it." - Charles Bruxton
  3. 3. <ul><li>Everybody and their mother is asking you to innovate these days. Everybody is asking you to “think outside the box.” </li></ul><ul><li>It makes a lot of sense. </li></ul>But when will you find the time?
  4. 4. <ul><li>Everywhere we go these days – no matter what industry – we hear the same complaints: “Who has the time to innovate?” “We’re running just to stay in place!” Sure, it’s a good idea, but when ? I’m already overcommitted.” </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Clearly, everyone needs to find more time to innovate. Everyone needs to simplify their work life, so there are more opportunities to create, collaborate, and turn top of the line ideas into bottom line results. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Time </li></ul>Do you have it? Or does it have you?
  7. 7. <ul><li>YES, the act of finding some time to make some time will take some time (ah, the paradox), but it ’s time well spent. A few minutes now will save you weeks of frustration down the road. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>THE ALTERNATIVE? </li></ul><ul><li>“ If you always do </li></ul><ul><li>what you ’ve always done, </li></ul><ul><li>you ’ll always get </li></ul><ul><li>what you’ve always got.” </li></ul>
