Between wanderers and tourists, travelers walk the innovation path

“The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see.”

G. K. Chesterton

The traveler strikes the right balance between the wanderer’s open-minded absence of direction, and the tourist single-minded destination focus.

Like the touritst, the traveler knows the value of setting a direction and charting a course. Like the wanderer, the traveler knows the value of observing the way of life, the attitudes, the passing light in the landscape, the unexpected, the transient, which will never find their place on the shelf of the airport bookshop.

Like the traveler, the innovator knows the challenge and sets a course to address it, then keeps the flexibility to discover along the way the people, ingredients and tools that will eventually enable her to meet the challenge.
