Keep On Going - Charles F. Kettering

“Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down.”

– Charles F. Kettering

Momentum seldom comes without some sort of movement, and people who want to get anywhere in their lives will never do it while they’re at a standstill, no matter how patient they are. Inventor, engineer and former head of research at GM, Charles F. Kettering, tells us that in order to stumble onto anything, you’ve got to first be going.

Ideas do not often strike people while they’re waiting around, they strike people when the person is close to finding the idea, when they’ve started with a rough hypothesis, tested it, monitored results, and are ever closer to understanding how the mechanism works. If you are simply sitting down in waiting, then all you’ll ever know is what you already know – you’ll never be able to find anything new.
