Why Do You Want to Innovate?

If you ask most people if they want to innovate, they will say YES. But if you ask them WHY, they won't always have a ready answer. That's what this poll is all about. I want to know why YOU want to innovate — what motivates you to make the extra effort to do something extraordinary.

Simply rate each of the possible reasons below, on a scale of 1-5 (with "5" being the highest) for how much it describes what moves you to innovate. (Results of the poll will be posted on Heart of Innovation).

5 = Completely agree
4 = Mostly agree
3 = Neutral
2 = Mostly disagree
1 = Completely disagree
