So you want to become an inventor! What a noble cause. Many people dream of discovering a breakthrough idea that will change the World and save the planet. Unfortunately, many great ideas never get to the marketplace for a variety of reasons. If you want to invent something, you need to be inspired. This allows you to become motivated. Let me tell you a story about inventing.
Once upon a time, there was a man who had an idea. He discovered a process that would allow an air conditioner to become a source of alternative energy by allowing the air conditioner to be an electrical power producer rather than an electrical power user. idea for invention For thirty years, he was an air conditioning contractor. During that time, he saw more and more interference of the industry from outside influences, such as governmental entities and environmental laws, electric and gas utilities, contractors and builders, insurance regulations, and the like. He was frustrated to say the least. All of this interference continually weakened the industry making it harder and harder to make a comfortable living out of it. The HVAC industry had become a scourge to environmental interests. It is considered one of the worst industries that contribute to global warming and other atmospheric damage.
He had enough, and wanted to change the situation. In the late 1980’s, the electric utility in his area was pushing a program under the motivated guise of saving homeowners money on their electric bill. The program did that, but what the utility was really trying to do was lower the tonnage of air conditioning being installed in homes in order to lessen their peak load demand put upon them in the heat of the summer. Many lawsuits occurred because the sizing of the air conditioning was really not done in good practice. Many homes were hot and uncomfortable. He was inspired and motivated to turn this around. He wanted to come up with some idea that would make people want to use air conditioning again. He wanted the HVAC industry to become a “green” industry. Thus the patented idea he thought of. new invention ideas
Unfortunately, he has not been able to “invent” the funding needed to launch the idea. Ideas such as this can scare people. They have the potential to change the World. But many look at such ideas only from a micro economic point of view, rather than looking at it from a “big picture” point of view and the great benefits that would be achieved. Maybe someday you will be able to purchase the product and charge your electric car!
Invention is the desire and process of solving a problem or need. Everyone is different. Once you are determined to solve something, be aware of when your creative juices start to flow. Begin to know yourself! Keep a writing pad close to you when you feel your desire and motivation peak. I do not know why, but somehow most of his inventing was done very early in the morning around 2:30 or 3:00 am. He learned to keep a writing pad by his bed so he could sleepily jot down his ideas and hopefully be able to refer to them when he completely arose in the morning. Find out what works best for you.
