Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - I Would Like to Thank the Academy

« Why Didn’t *I* Think of That? | Main | It's About the Promise »



What a great way to bring the focus home -- we do tend to fall in love with our own ideas and sometimes forget to let other people build on them.

"To make the most of an idea it takes hard work and commitment."

And that is often where the rub comes...doing the hard work and living the commitment.

We often think our ideas should shine in an instant. And they don't.

I saw a lot of this when serving as an Internet business strategist during the .com craziness.

Everyone's idea was "brilliant". And for that reason we all had to sign "non-disclosure" papers.

It was at that time that I found a quote about ideas that I often use.

"Ideas are like children, they're special when they're your own."

Really like being part of the conversation you're creating Valeria!

Keep creating,
