The Discipline of Discovery

Wednesday, August 03, 2016

Discovery, Creativity, Innovation.  When you think of these words I bet you don't think of associating words like discipline and process to them. Yet, I would say it is appropriate to do just that, but in ways that may not be what you might typically imagine. ..
