A quote from an article in Inc stood out for me as being a metaphor for much more than the closure of a product line, which was the subject. Jason Fried, co-founder of 37 Signals writes about closing Sortfolio: “Sortfolio may be profitable, but it’s far less profitable than our other products. As a result, it gets far less of our attention. And given the way things are going, it’ll get even less TLC in the future. Sortfolio is standing still. And anything that’s standing still is atrophying”.

David Allen never recommended this (as far as I know) but as well as my to-do list, and my someday-maybe list, I have a ‘things I’m not doing’. It hurts to put ideas to one side that you know you won’t ever have the time or energy to do, or which won’t ever be as important as what you’re working on now. Economists and sociologist tell us that one of the worst habits we have as humans is emphasising ’sunk cost’. That’s the time and energy and money you’ve spent on something already. You look at a project and think, I’ve spent a month on it, I should follow it through.

Instead, we need to be better at focusing on our priorities. We need to say, ‘I’ve spent a month on it and it’s not working. I’m done with it’. David Allen did recommend a periodic of your priorities and how your to-do’s fit into them. Moving them to a ‘things I’m not doing’ list, is an easier way of removing them from active duty rather than killing them altogether.

How much does inflight entertainment weigh? The Singapore airline Scoot says that removing the IFE systems from their 777’s reduced the weight by 7%! When you consider that the requirement for fuel on an aircraft is made up of both distance and weight, a 7% saving is huge. The article I read this in, in Businessweek, goes onto say that the IFE on a Lufthansa A380 weighs a total of a ton.

No wonder airlines are scrabbling to innovate in this area – consumers expect IFE, and yet, it increases costs significantly. One solution is to rent out ipads – but where do you put your ipad when you’re trying to eat your dinner, especially in coach?

As someone who travels with a laptop, an ipad, and 10 or more magazines, the answer is simple. Take off, landing and eating are for magazines. When in coach, have an empty plastic bag in your carryon. You can put the read magazines in it, and that keeps your seat tidier. Laptops are for work, when I’m not travel exhausted. My ipad is for reading something trashy when I am. (In fact, to save weight, airlines should just start weighing my carry-on!).

Another solution which is being tried is using the IFE systems for e-commerce. Airlines already sell space in their in-flight magazines for advertising revenue. If they do the same for the IFE, they can recoup some (or all) of the additional cost it causes.

All this goes to show, that no matter where you’ve got to on the innovation curve, there’s always further to go.
