Why Most Ideas Are Dead At Inception
Ideas get lost everyday before they are even articulated
Most of us haven’t figured out a good way to get all our brilliant ideas across to other people, so it can feel like we’re running in circles sometimes. You start off by writing it quickly on a sticky note, then another idea in your notebook, and finally throw another thought on a Google Doc. Before you know it, your ideas get lost in everyday life.
When you do find a way to share it with others, does it really start a journey towards cultivation and then implementation? Mentioning an idea in a meeting seems as though there is an immediate impact. You get to mentally check off that you got our idea out there.
But what happens from there? Who takes oneness? Who makes sure it will happen?
Not to mention if you do bring something up, it might get crushed right away. Maybe you know that you’ll have support for your ideas, but you just don’t know how to get everyone on the same page.
And when you think you’re getting somewhere but you can’t get any traction in the office or in your friend group, it’s really frustrating. There needs to be a way to post ideas and see what gets support. Others could be thinking the same exact think you are, but right now there is no way to know.
Maybe you just want to bounce your idea off of someone else before you post it for your entire team to see.
There’s a better way to get your ideas out there to your team.
