I just stumbled upon a good article that showed angles and perspectives, so I hope others will also become helped by reading these 7 myths.

I am not sure if the author is 100% accurate on all accounts, however, it was valuable for me to start to question all my prejudice about these 7 perspectives and more details that could be obstacles for innovating or development.
