Innovations are heavily influenced by both love and passion. First, innovation happens for the love of what one does, but passion keeps it going. Hence, it is through love and passion by which innovations are both born and nurtured. Human passions fuel innovations, and without these emotions, innovation would be impossible. Passionate innovators share their passion with others.
