Read_797 – The Next Big Thing Will Look Like a Toy

"One of the amazing things about the internet economy is how different the list of top internet properties today looks from the list ten years ago.  It wasn’t as if those former top companies were complacent – most of them acquired and built products like crazy to avoid being displaced.

Why do so many miss the biggest innovations and most revolutionary technologies sitting right in front of their eyes?

But far more often disruptive technologies are dismissed because they find their first footing in a small, obscure, or purely explorative niche… in other words, they get mistaken as a toy, until they change the world.

“All big things come from small beginnings. The seed of every habit is a single, tiny decision. But as that decision is repeated, a habit sprouts and grows stronger. Roots entrench themselves and branches grow. The task of breaking a bad habit is like uprooting a powerful oak within us. And the task of building a good habit is like cultivating a delicate flower one day at a time.”
