Topic: Sharing Ideas
We all have ideas but a good one is precious, something to be valued and taken care of. Like a young seed, and with the care, attention and work it deserves, it has the potential to grow into a small plant or a large tree casting dappled shadows over generations to come. But to do that, it must be planted in the ground as it will not grow if it remains yours alone, in the fold of your hand. To grow, a plant must be shaped by your own hand but also by the soil it is planted into, the rain, the wind, the sun. An idea, like a seed, must be shared to grow to its full potential.
How important is it to share and discuss ideas? Do you think ideas become better when they are out in the open? Do they become less original as a result? Is there a time to hide and a time to share an idea?
Tell me what you think, I will post a selection of replies as they come in and if you’re not doing it for me, do it for yourself, Aloud.
