"Lasting innovation doesn’t happen when you’re scrambling to meet short-term, quarterly targets. It happens when you give yourself and others the freedom to tackle problems whose answers may still be far out over the horizon. By carving out space for weird and creative souls to think a few years out vs. just a few months out, you’ll be allowing them to explore, experiment, take risks, and ultimately pursue more audacious ideas than you ever could have imagined otherwise".
