Innovation is not born from the dream. Innovation is born from the struggle. (Simon Sinek, British-American author)

Perhaps this is just another way of saying, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” Put more formally: “When the need for something becomes imperative, you are forced to find ways of getting or achieving it.” We’d like to think that an inspiring idea is what leads to new and worthy creations, but apparently, developing new and helpful devices comes from the need for them.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. (Colossians 3:23)
