Chapter 2 Discoveries and Inventions That Anyone Can Do
It is true that genius discoveries and inventions have played a major role in the progress of science and technology today. Nobel Prize winners in science and technology fields and their achievements are good examples. However, not everyone can make such advanced inventions and discoveries.
It is also possible to find new technologies and conveniences by combining, improving and applying various technologies and phenomena up to now. I think that Mr. Konosuke Matsushita of Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. also laid the foundation for a large company with such an approach. Hiroyuki Mizuno, the former vice president of Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd., who wrote books about Mr. Konosuke Matsushita of Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd., defined such power as “conceptual power”.
What should we do to create new methods, technologies and services that can contribute to the development of society and tackle various issues such as environmental protection and energy conservation?
We should have careful observation, attitude to listen and judge many opinions, excellent perceptual ability, own practical ability, endurance toward hardship, consideration not to disturb others and feeling grateful and so on.
