“I don’t have any good ideas”

Great perspective!

Now I know you’re bluffing.

First, everyone has good ideas. Maybe not as fast or as often as others, but are you telling me that in your entire life, you’ve never had one good idea? Ever?

Second, and way more telling, what happens if I give you a good idea. Here. Take it. Now what? You have it, right?

Now you need to find a second reason for not making things happen. “I don’t have enough time.” “I can’t get the resources.” “I’m not sure, really sure, guaranteed, that this is a good idea.” “My boss won’t let me.”

And so the lizard brain speaks up, and so the cycle continues, and so the Resistance wins.

There are more good ideas, right here, right now, for free, than ever before. More opportunities to connect and lead and make a difference and an impact and a living. Fewer guarantees, sure, but more ideas.

It’s your choice about whether or not you do anything with them, but please don’t tell me you don’t have any good ideas.
