what’s worthless to me

Being a person who’s always trying to serve the greater good, I’m always attempting to find worth in all things.  Trust me when I tell you my fellow thinkers that this isn’t the easiest task to take upon.  Especially when in comes to helping others get their ideas out.

To date, I’ve never had anyone tell me what they thought was their worst idea…and they’re seldom opened to the fact that their “good” idea just might suck.  Now of course I’m quite grateful because I would be forced to find another way to support myself if not for it.

Never one to complain without offering a solution, I leave you with this thought to ponder…many great ideas are not executed, and many great executioners are without great ideas.  One without the other is worthless!

    I don’t fully agree with you on your closing comment. Yes, a great idea without proper execution is worthless, but great execution with even a mediocre idea is still very valuable.

    As an example, think of stand-up comedy, you can give two people the same jokes/material which can be mediocre at best, the only difference is one person is Dan Rather and the other person happens to be Chris Rock. Who do you think will bring the jokes to life?? My bet is on Chris, why? because of his comic timing, his way with words, his body language…basically his approach and execution to the material/jokes.

    I really believe that great execution alone, can still generate acceptable if not exceptional results.

    Just my 2 cents. :)
