With business and life, it can be helpful to remember that what we think might be a new idea or concept may actually be more timeless.
Thomas Jefferson, the 3rd president of the United States provides an excellent example. He was known for many great achievements, including authoring the Declaration of Independence. While this may be his most famous ‘manifesto’, some of his other writing can be considered modern in thought, although written over two hundred years ago.
Keeping these ideas and the time frame they were written in mind can help foster the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit.
