Passion Party #172 - Imitate, Emulate, Innovate

The first thing I need to do
is just imitate
find someone already successful at what I want to do
and copy the model.
The KEY is to find the model that fits for you:
it has all been done before,
don't re-invent the wheel,
just find the wheel that fits

The next step is to emulate
to aim to exceed or surpass
what was created by the people who taught me

Only after I have fully integrated
what has already been proven
can I consider innovation.
Trying to introduce something new
when I don't even have it "right"
is a road to disaster.
Once I totally have the system wired and perfected
only then can I begin to do it in a new way.
