September 16, 2015, TGIW: Unhumping Hump Day…an Idea

“Those who are meant to hear will understand.  Those who are not meant to understand will not hear.” –Confucious

It’s your dream. It’s your idea. It’s your inner voice.

Nobody else can hear it, and many won’t speak the language even when you try to translate it.

Yet it was given to you. It’s not yours, and yet it landed on your doorstep.

What you do with it is up to you: listen to it or not, entertain it or not, nurture it or not, and birth it or not.

Whether others hear it yet is not your concern.

The eminent science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke said that new ideas pass through three periods: 1) It can’t be done, 2) It probably can be done, but it’s not worth doing, and 3) I knew it was a good idea all along!

The question is whether we have the fortitude to foster-parent the idea through the third period.

Got idea rearing?

“If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.” –Albert Einstein
