Lean start up methodology urges us to fail fast and often. Design thinking asks you to prototype and ideate. Workplace cultures are striving to become less structured so we can have the space to play and discover. Are these new ideas? I would argue no, ever heard the old adage, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!”
This idea is as old as the hills. It is rare that anything ever works out perfectly the first time. Life is a process. So what do we do when we don’t know where to go or how to fix our ideas to make them viable?
The answer lies in other people. Get out there and collaborate, mix your ideas with other people’s and see what happens. Don’t try to predict or make things happens. Keep it open and loose. Just listen, suggest and be flexible. Life is an amazing experiment and things happen if you get out there and start throwing a few ideas around. It is almost magical!
Remember to be patient with you ideas or vision. Sometimes it just takes a while for it to catch on. The world is a simultaneously big and small place. It is possible to find the people like you, where ever in the world they are and see what happens. Share and try and try again!
