How ideas come
And who they come to
I found it!
The excitement comes when an idea comes to you or you finally solve a problem.
Archimedes is probably the most popular to use this expression. History notes that he was so excited about his discovery that he jumped out of the bathroom and ran into the streets to tell the king, shouting at the top of his voice, Eureka!
How do great ideas come and who do they come to?
They come to those that are stupid (open-minded) enough to see it and smart enough to understand the impact it might have.
They come to those that keep trying (and are patient) but also know how and when to give up because giving up is a skill.
They come to those that are looking, even when they are not looking.
Perhaps it’s also important to ask, who do great ideas work for?
Simple. Those that are willing to try…
Thomas Edison, Archimedes, Issac Newton, Nikola Tesla, Elon Musk, Tim Berners-Lee, Steve Wozniak, Rudolf Diesel, and on, and on…
First, eureka! Then, let's go!
