How well-intended, smart, focused, hard-working people royally fuck up and spin their wheels

There's a line of roles:

Researcher ---- Scientist ---- Engineer ---- Business Person ---- Sales Person

With two relationships
  •  Ability to take something and make someone use it in their life
  •  Ability to create something genuinely new

The Intersection known as Innovation

Either you, or the entity that you are working with has to be in a narrow perimeter in this world or else you are just either making something that nobody will use, or making something that isn't progressive

Being a successful entrepreneur, venturist, futurist, etc ... depends on knowing how these roles interact and influence one another in the minds and actions of the creators, consumers, and middlemen between the two.
