Why hold onto an idea that you are not implementing imminently?
Give it away and you will find another idea.
Give it away and you might find feedback to improve your idea.
Give it away and you might find people who want to implement the idea with you.
Give it away and one day you might find a service built to share your vision and serve your need.
Today, we are announcing our new experiement with you to help ideas to flow. Simply describe and hashtag #ideaTODO in a tweet and we will retweet anything that is STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) related.
Need some convincing? There are blog articles out there writing about it already at lifehacker, by a designer, and an entrepreneur. From the perspective of someone who stumbles on what I thought up as original ideas that were also thought up by others as original ideas, it was just good to know that there are like minded out there, and if collaboration follows, that's just amazing. It also opens that up to discussion and improves the idea. An idea is just an idea without at least a plan, if not the will and skills, to execution.
But wait, what if people steal my idea and build an amazing business empire? Well, building a business empire takes a plan, will and the relevant skills to get things flying and stay in flight, if you aren't planning to build it soon or to stay with it for the next 5-10 years, someone will come up with that idea independently anyways. In the worse case, you get to see learn from someone the trajectory of your idea based on their execution. One way or another, you are going to get more learning opportunities out of that than keeping it safe. Simply describe and hashtag #ideaTODO in a tweet, we'll help it spread!
Looking forward to an open, collaborative future.
