There are two things in this world that take no skill: 1. Spending other peopleâ€™s money and 2. Dismissing an idea. Dismissing an idea is so easy because it doesnâ€™t involve any work. You can scoff at it. You can ignore it. You can puff some smoke at it. Thatâ€™s easy. The hard thing to do is protect it, think about it, let it marinate, explore it, riff on it, and try it. The right idea could start out life as the wrong idea. So next time you hear something, or someone, talk about an idea, pitch an idea, or suggest an idea, give it five minutes. Think about it a little bit before pushing back, before saying itâ€™s too hard or itâ€™s too much work. Those things may be true, but there may be another truth in there too: It may be worth it.
