Why we’re bad at being great

Filed under: business,creativity — Erik Dobberkau @ 00:14

When reading the marvellous interview with John Sculley on CultOfMac the other day, I wondered once more why we (meaning people living in Germany, but there are other countries sharing this fate) are so bad at being great. Don’t get me wrong here, there are hundreds of engineers creating great stuff every day, but that’s what I’m talking about. They’re good at solving problems, like how to fix a screw in a hole.

But what we’re bad at is having great visions. By solving today’s problems, we’re not necessarily crafting the future. But the future has never belonged to the Bozos and their manuals. Conclusions left to you. Trust you to be smart enough.
