For Innovators. 

When people ask me how I invent, I usually say, ‘I take showers and walk the dog.’ That’s how things happen. I put an idea on the back shelf of my brain and then it jumps out when I am ready and it says, ‘Hey, look at me! I’m an idea!’”

He didn’t lose count exactly; before he started patenting his ideas, he’d already invented many tools and products, primarily in the sleep and medical technology spaces, for over two decades. He just didn’t know to call it inventing at the time. Innovation came naturally to him, and his business circumstances demanded constant problem solving. published in April
