Ideas are like ants, they’re everywhere. Why don’t we trip over them? A: Because we don’t see them.
Ideas are free but highly valuable. They sneak up on us when we least expect them. Here’s some now!
Ideas go out solo but love the company of friends. The strongest ideas are as lean as an athlete.
The best ideas are like bamboo, they bend in the fierce wind of debate and dissection.
People give away ideas without even knowing it. The throwaway line and the deep insight are each as likely to be taken seriously. Write it down.
Keep new deposits in your ideas bank.
What an investment!
- Active listening opens doors of possibility. Empathy, the twin, nods knowingly, smiling.
- Ideas flow to cool minds. They bubble up from the sub-conscious. They surprise and delight.
- Ideas spring from who you meet, what you see and the things you read. Become wise in the digital world.
- Ideas are like social types at a party, making connections one after another or lingering with one.
- Like the seasons, ideas come and go; they wither and flourish; seeds become fruit; leaves turn to dust.
- Study what you’re passionate about to discover rich new veins of gold. Good ideas make money.
- Look at different things for fresh perspectives. Look at familiar objects with new eyes. Join ideas together as scouts tie ropes. You’ll get surprising strength. Use ideas in combinations. Like the boxer you’ll hit the target.
- Look for patterns and trends that explain the what, and how and why. Every great company started in one person’s mind. Always ideas are nourished by action, reflection, hard work and sacrifice.
- Ideas upset the balance. Heroes of noble causes and movements speak of human or spiritual values. They challenge the status quo. They create new realities now. They seek a better world.
- Be prepared to open the door to each new idea. Hold it to the light of reason to see if it has that ring of truth.
- Ideas exist in time and space. When is the ripe time to float, expose or promote your best idea?
- Build a mindset that invites ideas in. Let people know you welcome all ideas. Sift them later for quality.
