It seems we’re more interested in knowing what the other guy’s doing, so we can improve on it. Seeing that this has become the norm it leads me questioning whether people want to be innovative at what they do or just want to be better than others.
The “real entrepreneurs” seek to outdo themselves not anyone else, which only begins by doing what you do. I might be opening a can of academically flawed but intellectually sound worms. Companies that lead in their market don’t do so by following a concept spearheaded by their competition, but design products and offer services that are better than their last.
