Not all ideas are so special. Some are downright bland and boring. Some are self-indulgent plans for glory. Some are wishes without substance. Some are dreams we won’t invest in.
Ideas can be impractical, improper, or impossibly beyond imagination’s dreamy land. Ideas can be great, grand, and goofy − well worth pursuing, playing with to find where they take us and who with.
Every long time an idea happens, when a piece of this collides with a bit of that. Suddenly, what you have is a great idea. It’s not great because you had it. It’s great because you recognize it. You realize that it’s something you, your friends, and people you don’t know have needed it for a so very long.
That’s when you have to take the idea out of your head and put it in your hands to build on it. Then it’s time to set your feet to run.
