Samurai Innovator

Everything I've every learned and practiced about innovation, can be boiled down to the following:

  1. Think of what is right and true
  2. Practice and cultivate science
  3. Become acquainted with the arts
  4. Know the principles of craft
  5. Understand the harm and benefit in everything
  6. Learn to see everything accurately
  7. Become aware of what is not obvious
  8. Be careful even in the smallest of matters
  9. Do not do anything useless.

(From 'The Book of Five Rings' - Miyamoto Musashi, 1643)
