Who doesn’t wish for a great idea? I mean, everyone would love to leave their footprints on the sands of time. We all want to change the world or at least be remembered for some kind of innovation .But the question is, how do you keep the ideas flowing? How do they come to you? Where is the Great Idea?
The ability to create and understand the concept of ideas is considered to be a crucial and defining feature of human beings. The reason for this is not far-fetched, as most of the world’s best inventions and innovations started as a ‘mere’ idea.
Oh did I just say mere? There is no such thing as a mere idea, if Albert Einstein’s quote expressed thus “If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.” is anything to go by.
An idea could be a thought, a plan, or a suggestion about what to do, an opinion or belief, something that you imagine or picture in your mind. One of the ways to conceive an idea is to look for an existing problem and try to create a solution: This is key!
Having said that, an idea could arise in an impulsive manner, even without thinking or serious reflection.
See below some actions points that could also aid a free flow of ideas:
Do your research
Improve your observation skills
Maintain an open mind
Talk to smart people
Don’t forget to write it down
Ideas indeed rule the world!
