Accommodation requires us to take a good look at every inch of the boundaries we’ve created for ourselves and find where we have solidified ridged and unyielding segments that when tightened even further become frail and brittle.

A good idea might seem like a good place to start. But an innovation is an opportunity to change lives for the better. Now, one might say, an innovation starts with a good idea. But the point to be made here, is that a true innovation, something that is both new and now, possessing novelty and originality, can only arise from a space where there is first no idea.

Entrepreneurs of all stripes take chances. It’s part of the job description. When those chances have to do with creating good work - those efforts taken to be of benefit to others and the community - the leap across the abyss of economic uncertainty is no greater or worse. However, the consequences of failure somehow feel much worse. You’re not just letting yourself down, you’re letting down all those you had envisioned to serve.
