In my first years at OCAD, I was very protective of my ideas. I didn’t want to have to fear that anybody else would steal them from me, so I kept them quiet and to myself.
A handful of critique sessions later taught me that keeping ideas to oneself is a selfish move.
Because sharing your ideas with other people made them better most of the time.
And if it was a simply bad idea, that would get exposed and you wouldn’t have to keep your bad idea needlessly precious.
There’s a huge supply of ideas out there.
That means a single idea isn’t worth very much.
What’s more valuable is the sharing, and the growth, and the discussion, and the action around an idea.
Make it happen.
