“New needs need new techniques.”
– Jackson Pollock
My book This Could… began with those words from Pollock. It seems even more fitting to include them here as I send a revised version into the world. Five words rarely frame the entirety of a book’s mission so well.
You learn a lot when you write books; even more after they are published. This Could… was created as a catalyst to show how we can become more resourceful and reduce waste by doing more with what we already have. In the middle are six steps to help people do so.
The section really caught on with entrepreneurs and innovators, and people began asking if the steps were available as a standalone guide.
I realized my mission to increase resourcefulness and self-reliance could reach more people if the steps lived on their own with more room to breathe. So here they are, reworked, revised, and even more resourceful: Six Steps for Resourceful Innovation.
