Tinkering produces marvels

When thinking of how innovations are made, one might think that this is done by some genius suddenly thinking up a miraculous idea. However, this is rarely how it happens.

For example, Penicillin was discovered “by accident” by Alexander Fleming in his lab at St. Mary’s Hospital, London after having slaved away at tinkering and experimenting for a couple of decades.

Similarly, one can imagine the marvels of the future to be invented by tinkerers and practitioners who put in the hard work which is essential for innovation.
