Today I want to write about another reason innovation often seems so difficult. I like to think of this reason as the "odd couple". If you are of a certain age, or watch old television shows, you'll recall the Odd Couple, a TV show based on a hit broadway play. In it two confirmed bachelors decide to live together. One, Jack Klugman, is a sportswriter and a professed slob. The other roommate, played by Tony Randle, is a neat freak. As you can imagine, living a cramped New York City apartment, hilarity ensues because these two are constantly trying to assert their will, their frame of reference. Klugman creates chaos, messiness and dirt, while Randle is constantly cleaning. These two occupy one small physical space, but live in two different realities that often collide.
