I’m working on caring enough about the ideas I share to 1) spend sufficient time and energy thinking about them before I share them and 2) argue for them until I’m convinced they’re wrong or limited. I don’t want to “put an idea out there” (much less “throw an idea out there”) anymore. I want to care enough about my ideas to handle them well. Unless it’s a ball or a back handspring, you don’t throw things you care about.
One thought on “Stop Throwing Your Ideas”
I may just put that last line on a sticky note on my PC, Rocky. I am taking so many shots (my hockey imagery for throwing, I guess) that I’m not aiming well at times. Thinking of the way many people write about “making a pitch” will help me connect to not throwing my valuable ideas around — or away. Thank you.
