Don’t be afraid of telling others your ideas

False:
All your ideas should be good ones.
You should make sure an idea is fully baked before telling it.
You don’t want to have people know you as a person who creates some ideas which are not useful.

Better:

FFFOTRQ

Flow – Get the process for idea sharing and communication flowing

Feedback – Ask for others feedback on your ideas

Failure – Fail early and often. Great inventors had many ideas and failures

Openness – Be open about sharing your ideas

Tenacity – Be stubborn and follow your hunches. Don’t give up too early

Realizing – when it’s time to move on – also need to recognize when an idea isn’t working or when it’s time to let go

Quantity – Come up with lots of ideas

99 percent of success is built on failure.

    AC Writes: I haven’t watched your video yet (I will later tonight) but I have to say right off the bat that I cannot fully agree with the first part. I used to have ideas all the time; in fact great ideas came to me every day, and not long ago (i.e. 6-10 years ago), I thought that by now, I would be making lots of money with at least one of my great ideas. I do not know if it’s because they have reached a certain age or what but unfortunately, my parents are always pessimistic about my ideas and so, I have learned to keep everything a secret at home; however, I do talk to people like you guys about my ideas, and get useful feedback, as well as a hint to whether or not my idea should be abandoned or modified. But that feeling of optimism sure feels good while it lasts; I do love that feeling that something good is going to happen just around the corner (of course, whether or not that something is actually going to happen is another matter) – that excitement of anticipation.
