One good idea

How to do anything with ideas. ✎ By Wayne K. Spear

What do Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, and Charles Darwin have in common?

All of them had one great idea.

What do you want? What do you need? Where do you want to go? All it takes is one good idea.

A software installation file is a self-contained package with step-by-step instructions. An idea is a self-contained package of step-by-step actions.

Doing begins with conceiving. Ideas beget actions.

Here is the simple, fool-proof formula for a great idea:

bad idea –> bad idea –> bad idea –> bad idea –> bad idea –> [etc.] –> great idea

What do Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, and Charles Darwin have in common?

All of them had bad ideas.

Having a great idea is the outcome of a banal and tedious process. That’s why so few of us bother.

In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. In the land of people who have no idea, your one idea will make you a champion.

Every day, write your ideas: big ideas, small ideas, practical ideas, fantastical ideas, money-making ideas, life and love ideas, gratitude ideas, household ideas, book ideas, change ideas, self-improvement ideas, decorating ideas, organization ideas, planning ideas.

In one year, fill a 365-page book with (mostly bad) ideas.

If a million-dollar idea is also a one-in-a-million idea, you’ll need 1,000,000 ideas. Or you may get lucky. Your million-dollar idea could be your first idea, or your tenth, or your 129th. The point is to keep going. Don’t stop at 128.

One good idea can make your day. One great idea can change your life.

As soon as possible, have one good idea.
