“If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.”
What it takes to bring a new idea into form, much less into operation in the world, is not a job for light weights.
As Einstein observes, the idea initially faces the first-blush reviews of absurdity.
Then, there’s gaining awareness and traction for the idea in a world of so much noise, information overload, and social media mayhem.
Also, we can’t forget the existing structures, forces, methods and mindsets that are already so heavily invested in the old ideas.
Yet, new ideas come about. Every day. From nothing…but human creativity and hopeful spirit.
Most die from inattention. Yet some turn into products that improve living, companies that employ thousands, or worldwide movements that inspire millions.
It’s what we do with those (initially) crazy ideas that makes the difference…and it appears that simply sitting on them, letting fear kidnap them, or referencing them in “one day” statements doesn’t work.
What crazy idea have you been perched on that needs to hatch?
Got crazy ideas?
“The new idea either finds a champion or it dies. No ordinary involvement with a new idea provides the energy required to cope with the indifference and resistance that change provokes.”
