I am humbly aware I am not remotely the smartest or most experienced person around. In fact I know very well just the opposite is true. Yet I continue to share ideas in this blog and in other places of my life. Why bother? What’s the point of sharing ideas if they are already available?
I stumbled across this wonderful, short observation on Seth Godin’s blog that explains. In a nutshell, “If I share it with you, then we will both have it.” And a shared idea is more powerful than one that is kept to oneself. Sharing ideas, infusing them with positivity and hope, is my particular gift. Even if being the genesis of ideas is not.
This is a piece of my WHY. To make the community around me stronger.
