In my experience, innovation depends on a very special blend of new experiences, of time and of good fortune. For me, those new experiences we have, when the time has come, then somehow fuse with past experience. Then with Lady Luck’s help, ‘the New Idea appears,’ we are inspired. For me such new experiences very often come through my travels, things I see and feel in countries very different from my own.
