From the author of 'Getting Things Done' at Do Lectures: Unlike a computer, we can not add more RAM to our brains. So we have to free up RAM so we can think more. David Allen gives us a system to set us free. · Go to David Allen: The mind is for having ideas not holding them →

The fallacy of the great idea

Tue, Mar 20, 2012|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , |Comments Off on The fallacy of the great idea

From ChangeThis: Many entrepreneurs feel that they cannot start a business without a great idea. They believe it will be impossible to succeed without a completely new concept, as the market will already be cornered by established businesses. Only by venturing into uncharted territory can they achieve their dreams. This is the fallacy of the great idea.

The simple truth is that it is quite possible to create a thriving business without a big idea. In fact, starting up with a tried and tested concept is very sensible. The real key to success is focus and brilliant execution. Yes, the world needs people with grand ideas who are willing to take big risks to further progress, but the world also needs small businesses creating jobs, and entrepreneurs should not be embarrassed about not having a claim on originality. · Go to The fallacy of the great idea →

Fri, Mar 16, 2012|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , |Comments Off on A taxonomy of ideas?

From David McCandless: Recently, when throwing ideas around with people, I’ve noticed something. There seems to be a hidden language we use when evaluating ideas.

Neat idea. Brilliant idea. Dumb idea. Bad idea. Strange idea. Cool idea.

There’s something going on here. Each one of these ideas is subtly different in character. Each adjective somehow conveys the quality of the concept in a way we instantly and unconsciously understand. · Go to A taxonomy of ideas? →

Creativity happens when you throw out the obvious ideas

From Forty: What would happen if we pushed a little deeper? What if we did one pass of brainstorming, then completely scrapped it and started over (or at least picked a few favorite ideas and kept going)? It sounds like a lot of work – and it can be – but the results can be remarkable. · Go to Creativity happens when you throw out the obvious ideas →
