It’s a fairly commonplace saying, but is there really “no such thing as a bad idea”?
Personally, I don’t think there is. Yes, there are moments where, on reflection, a concept you deemed fantastic in the early hours of the morning after a few espresso martinis seems utterly ridiculous in the clear light of day, but it’s all too easy to underestimate the power of a single thought.
With a single thought you can create a business, revolutionise an industry or even change the world. Every idea you have is simply a stepping stone to something else, so write it down! I always carry my little black book with me so if I hear something that triggers a thought process in my mind, I can capture it on paper and come back to it later.
I truly believe that, in life, there’s no such thing as a bad idea. Every thought generates some kind of momentum; gets your mind whirring and engages your imagination. It’s how a good idea becomes a great idea. Are you writing yours down?
