Innovation is as important as invention. New technologies continue to surprise us as innovations have always bemused us by proving that there are great and countless possibilities of using and improving certain devices to function various tasks. Innovation is the process of improving, enhancing, and transforming certain things or practices to further better their performance and functionality. The humanity's imperfection and frailty breeds the necessity for innovation.

In addition, the longing for new and better things also increase the need to innovate inventions. There is no boundary for innovation as there is no boundary limit for invention. Among the great benefits that innovation provides us is the fact of perfecting and improving things. The basic principle of innovation is that there is always a room for improvement. Thus, no matter how great a breakthrough that an invention has been considered, it can still be improved as certain mechanical weaknesses and glitches or by simply finding the possibility of integrating such functionality with another device and vice versa is made possible.

The people and society continuously confront issues and problems as a result of certain methods of development and progress. A glaring example of this concern brought about by progress is the environmental degradation. Certain devices especially those electronic and those that emit carbon significantly contribute to the depletion of our ozone layer that intensifies global warming by adding more greenhouse gases in our atmospheres. Due to this alarming situation, certain gadgets, devices, and tools were subjected to review and remodeling to suit the environmental standards. Since these tools are also important to the lives of the people, prohibiting their use is certainly not among the options. Thus, innovation is appropriately called for to address the problem. Innovations in automobiles, electronics, and other devices have resulted in environmentally safe technology such as electric cars and those that run by natural gas, light-emitting diodes as replacement of compact fluorescent lamps, and many more that have lessened if not diminished their chances of further harming the environment.

Given that inventions always suffer infirmities and these imperfections cause massive impacts not only to the functionality and utility of the thing but also as to the quality of life of all humanity, it is but convincingly essential that everything be subjected to innovation. As mentioned, no matter how perfect an object or thing may seem, there will always be some room for improvement to make it suit the changing needs and circumstances of time as well as perfect it in such a way that it would not anymore pose threats to the quality of lives of the present and future generation. Without innovation, it cannot be said that one has achieved success. Invention is merely the gate for realizing that certain thing can be done and many more await us once innovation takes place. Hence, if we really want real success, whether in business, invention, profession, or in life in general, then we should be stating to improve our ways that we do things to produce better results day by day.
