In the past few years I’ve grown increasingly frustrated with the “idea people”. People who are constantly coming up with new ideas, or the concept that the more ideas you have the better off you’ll be. Their view is that the better ideas are the new ones. Three old ideas were alright, but this new, great, special idea is the real ticket. That’s bullshit.
New ideas, truly original, invigorating ones are rare, ones that you can act on are even rarer and the ones that you’re willing to put the time and effort into are even rarer than that. Ones that you’re going to be passionate enough to see through until the end, to do what it takes to make them a success are even rarer than the rarest. I’m tired of ideas. I’m not tired of innovation or new things, but innovation comes with actually doing it. I’m tired of ideas perpetuating new ideas, and throwing out the old ones for the new ones, even though you never even started, let alone finished the old one.
