A New Turn of An Old Phrase

“Use our minds first, not our money” | DailyKaizen

I like the phrase, above, that Lee Fried used at the DailyKaizen blog. I think I like the phrase better than “creativity before capital.” Same idea, but a slightly different way of saying it.

Subtle semantic difference, or they’re saying the same thing?

    I like the smaller byte!

    One of our Design Engineers is currently in the DFSS (Design for Six Sigma) program. During a recent conversation he had a great comment (I don’t know if it is his or not, so I’ll give the credit to him):

    “…unencumbered by the thought process…” ~ Larry Anderson, Hub City, Inc.

    Ponder that one for a few minutes. What a great slogan for innovation and continuous improvement.
