There's an old saying:
"If you want to be successful you're more likely to succeed
if most people say your idea is crazy."
Why is that? Because, it's real easy to shoot ideas down:
Columbus, The Wright Brothers, Edison, etc.
Soon Nokia is going to release a Windows RT tablet right after
Microsoft's failure with its Surface RT tablet. Since the easy
Homer Simpson response to such an endeavor is "It won't fly",
it begs the question "Why does Nokia believe that it will be
a hit?" Nokia must know something not obvious to the naysayers.
Although I don't know what it is, I do know, if Nokia is
successful with its Windows RT tablet, after Microsoft's
failure, both Nokia and Elop will walk on water.
Colombus, the Wright brothers and Edison all died poor. Each of them failed to translate superior technology into a business plan.
Meanwhile home Simpson runs a nuclear power plant. And he thinks RT sucks.
I prefer the other old saying I heard from a seasoned exec in manufacturing.
When asked after 20 years, what single point he could offer as to the reason for his succes, He thought, only for a moment and replied.
"I try not to do stupid sh1+". - Good advice.
