I am not a believer on ideas by themselves. I think nobody should ever ignore the importance of other ingredients like self motivation, team work, and even pure luck. I know it because I have had some great ideas myself, but each time one or two of the other ingredients were absent. This is obviously one of the many reasons I am not still a millionaire at the age of 34 ;) (Not only that, but I sometimes struggle just to keep financial stability).
There is one businessman I have met in the last year and a half that seems to be completely the opposite. He seems to enjoy playing poker with his cards facing up. I guess he likes the challenge, and he must love the adrenaline, and god, he plays hard! I can say I respect him for this, but I couldn’t say I fully understand his reasons.
What is the point? I don’t know. Maybe this is part of my belief system review, and a way to find out what kind of fish I am in this sea.
LOL, now I see this could even be some kind of reflection on proprietary and open source software.
