Larger Ideas

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sometimes  our ideas  seem to be too much. You know what I mean, they seem to be so big, so grand– so visionary that others think they are just plain crazy.

I want you to have those type of ideas.

The ideas that seem so far fetch that people want to call the police and have you locked away. Before you finish speaking everyone shakes there head screaming “No way!!”

I want you to dream those type of dreams.

Those are the type of dreams that took us to the moon, found the human genome, integrated schools,let a black man become president of this country.

Big ideas matter. They shape history and transform lives. We were born to create ideas. Big one. Powerful ones. The kind that scare us at our core but move our hearts.

The mind, once expanded to the dimensions of larger ideas, never returns to its original size~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Expand your mind. Expand the  collective mind of your organization. Create big ideas.

Never return to your original size.
