Invention often becomes easier if you first Adopt something new yourself.
Chinese alchemists Invented gun powder in the 8th century, and used it to make some beautiful fireworks. Local Armies quickly Adopted the new technology to make bombs, mines, then cannons and firearms.
Barnes & Nobles Booksellers Adopted the concept of a giant bookstore with in-store amenities like coffee and information Kiosks from Powell's Books in Portland, OR. They Invented a behemoth business model that changed reading across the country for decades.
We all hit walls. We all slide onto rough patches from time to time. True grit and determination are powerful things. Sometimes a simple Adoption can offer the traction your effort deserves.
