What does Thanksgiving have to do with innovation?  Could you create a better way to cook a Turkey or a more innovative way to prepare cranberry sauce?  As I looked for ideas for a blog this week I found some innovations around Thanksgiving.  Then, I thought about this some more.  I came to the conclusion that we should be grateful for innovation and the people that help us with our innovation.

Innovation takes a lot of people and resources.  Perhaps taking time to thank those who support us can help us gain clarity.  So, read the quote below and take the time to thank those who help you.  Maybe expressing this gratitude will help you move forward with your innovation.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. – Melody Beattie
