September 10th Swap Ideas Day

You know what they say; “Two minds are better than one.” If you get a really good idea you might want to share it with someone because they may be able to improve on it! Of course, they may make it worse as well or they may even steal it for themselves and leave you out n the cold… but that’s not what today is all about.

How about those of us who get a great idea but we can’t put it into an actual working model? We have to share it with someone or else it will never get off the ground! You might even find that someone has been thinking something similar to your idea but in a different way. By sharing the idea you make make something that would have made a difference instead of having something that falls to the wayside and is useless.

It could be an invention, a manuscript, a life changing event or even something as simple as adding an ingredient while cooking. Sharing ideas is how out teacher teach, our government is supposed to function and and works really well at problem solving.

We all come up with ideas, normally several a day.  We do not share them because we think they are stupid or because someone might steal them. If we shared them maybe they would actually develop into something with the right minds in place.

How to celebrate – If you get an idea, write it down before you forget it. If the idea is something beyond your power to create it, find someone who can. Make a list of those who you feel you can trust with your idea and break them down in to categories where they might be of the most use.

It helped win the West and saved many during war, but it also has become a weapon of choice by robbers, thieves, and thugs. Remember it is not the gun that kills, it is the person behind the gun that pulls the trigger.
