Ideas and Outcomes

Do you have an idea?  Do you want to make the most of that idea?

Divorce yourself from the “idea” and instead attach yourself to the outcome.  Ideas can be jealously guarded, sometimes to the detriment of the outcome.

But when you are focused on the outcome, your idea becomes malleable…in fact, it should be so malleable that when you are done beating it about with trusted colleagues, it doesn’t even resemble the original idea.

When you really focus on the outcome (whatever that outcome is) you won’t give a tinker’s damn about protecting “your idea,” because your idea becomes far too large for just you.

Take those moments of inspiration, set aside your ego, and see if you don’t come up with something truly remarkable!
