Why do we innovate?

With the rise of entrepreneurship, innovation and coming up with the next “big” idea, is there such thing as over-saturation? How do we reflect and become more self-aware about our intentions?
How can we discern genuine approaches from those that are more limited in scope and perhaps even tokenistic?

Here are some reasons, in no particular order, that point out why we are drawn to carving out our own path and how in order to amplify impact. We should also be aware of how we define success through our actions.

To identify and solve a problem
To obtain specific expertise
To supplement a new lifestyle
To act as a catalyst for change
To be an objective strategist
To teach and learn
To try something new
Bring new energy into your life
To implement ideas fast
Do only what you love… eventually

Any others?
