33. What To Do With Failed Glue?

A failure in innovation can still lead to success. Sometimes when you are on the road to a successful innovation it is possible to create accidental successes along the way. An innovation that didn’t meet the requirements for one project may be a “eureka moment” for another one even years later. Try to encourage even the craziest ideas to be shared and advocated for within your business, because a network of people with individual problems and potential solutions can lead to the next million-dollar market opportunity. Celebrate today’s failures to increase your opportunities for future success!
