I realise this is not the usual blog post of an innovator and is a little cryptic to say the least.
My message is not for anyone in particular, in fact its not really a message at all if I’m honest, more a collection of random bleating personal thoughts more than substance of any worth…
I am a sheep!
I follow but I also sometimes lead.
I am therefore a different kind of sheep!
I am a sheep in the great big field where many others reside and they are all heading for the gate – just following each other as sheep do.
I realise there is a certain individuality about what it is I do that is different to the other sheep.
I am not a special sheep I’m just different, different because I head away from the others and sometimes stand in the opposite corner of the field – alone.
It is a lonely place.
But it is a better place because I have all this grass to eat for myself.
I bleat for them to come and join me.
I suspect most of us are sheep and follow one another from time to time, but if we all did the same thing, there would be no progress.
Perhaps I can see or sense something?
Perhaps I can share what it is, but as I have discovered; sheep will invariably follow the crowd and very few will initially follow or stand beside me.
In fact few know why I choose to stand here at all.
