Do Not Covet Your Ideas

"The problem with hording is you end up living off your reserves. Eventually you become stale.

If you give away everything you have, you are left with nothing. This forces you to look, to be aware, to replenish.

Somehow the more you give away the more comes back to you.

Ideas are open knowledge. Don't claim ownership.

They're not your ideas anyway, they're someone else's. They are out there floating by on the ether.

You just have to put yourself in a frame of mind to pick them up."

Paul Arden
from his book
It's Not How Good You Are, It's How Good You Want to Be.
