High Performance, Laziness And Idleness

“I don’t think necessity is the mother of invention. Invention, in my opinion, arises from idleness, possibly also from laziness – to save oneself trouble.” – Agatha Christie

During the pandemic I witnessed first-hand leaders innovating at a dramatically increased scale. Why? Because there was a very real and present danger, which threatened the survival of many businesses.

I innovated within my own business and tried many new things – because I had to.

So on one level I disagree with Agatha.
