Start Collecting Great Ideas

Ideas spark other ideas.

I don’t believe ideas are built in isolation —

they are inspired and mismashed by other ideas — they are build on the backs of everything that has come before us.

My ideas come from my experiences, knowledge, connections, and the input I surround myself with.

To have great ideas, we need to surround ourselves with great input +

Action Step — Start Collecting Great Ideas —

witty ideas, innovative ideas, ideas that make you laugh, cry — all them feels!

Ah-ha ideas, beautiful ideas, world-changing, life-simplifying, problem solving, niche-changing ones..

Remember,

Great ideas come from you — based on your accumulated experiences, 

built by the input you surround yourself with.

“Your competition is not other people but the time you kill, the ill will you create, the knowledge you neglect to learn, the connections you fail to build, the health you sacrifice along the path, your inability to generate ideas, the people around you who don’t support and love your efforts, and whatever god you curse for your bad luck.”  — James Altucher

 

 

Introducing IDEATION — Let There Be Innovation

Everything around us was, and is an idea.

It was created.

Look up and notice the craftsmanship around you.

Some idea are straightforward, to the point — getting the job done.

Some are well thought out, elegant and remarkable.

Some are inspired by generations of ideas.

That’s the beauty of ideation —

Ideas spark ideas.

Create a great idea, and it might impact generations of ideas going forward.

 

We all have ideas, but some are better than others.

Or we have that moment when we see a brilliant idea, and say ‘AH! Why didn’t I think of that!’

The question is,

What makes a great idea great, and how do we create excellent ones?

Q: What makes an idea great?
