you sell yourself short though, you may not have been able to articulate it as directly as chrisstensen, but you certainly did a better job than he did of giving me actionable advice on how to get better at trendspotting and thus innovating

every writing teacher ive ever had said it was better to show rather than to tell, and thats exactly what you did in your answer

you showed me the sorts of things you do rather than chrisstensen telling me why you do those things

both are good, and i appreciated when you sent me his article as well, but your in person advice of showing me your process was just as helpful in my opinion
