Timing of ideas
In striving to be better and do better, we think of ideas. We use these ideas to fulfill our hope we will do better, either immediately or in the future. An idea as a seed can be sown many years before it is acted upon. For many years, whilst the idea lies in the back of mind, it is mulled over, thought about, and looked at from many angles.
People within organisations’ often say to me they have been thinking about an idea for many years but they have been waiting for the right time to pick it, craft it and put it into its right place.
I myself had the idea that I wanted to go into business from the time I was very little and it took another 17 years before the time was right to act on it.
In striving to be better and do better, we grow. With growth we become more efficient and more effective. We grow as people, we grow as organisations and businesses and we grow as governments and communities and the society we live in grows, and so, idea’s are “everyone’s business”.
Do you know of an example of growth, caused by an idea, that you can share with us?
