Everyone had great ideas. But great ideas are really not worth much on their own. True value lies in the capacity to exploit great ideas.
Great countries are those that live on the cutting edge by executing on great ideas. Great companies are those that harness great ideas, either internally generated or otherwise, into tangible products. Great people are those who can bring their ideas to life.
Don’t be fooled by the false security of a renown for great ideas if all you have is a wagging tongue. Rather strive to raise your skills to the point that you can realise your loftiest Ideas.
