Lately, I’ve been more open about my ideas, more willing to expose their flaws, and the results have been terrific. Another person’s idea can turn my bad idea into a good one, and while it no longer belongs just to me, it’s twice as ready to exist. I realize that I’ve been fundamentally wrong about the makeup of ideas: they’re not heavy stones, that I should be able to lift alone if I’m strong enough; they’re big, awkward boxes, nearly impossible for one to lift, but an easy job for two or more.
I have made some of these same mistakes. I have been trying to learn to collaborate better.
