any idea

“Any idea withheld is an idea taken away.”

Seth Godin

Whenever we withhold an idea we could instead ask, “what is the story I’m telling myself?” Are we withholding the idea because we want it for ourselves? Or because we do not think that it is good enough?

Often the story leads back to fear, and often the fear is connected to scarcity. If we give something away, we now have less. But if we are holding onto less, then we also have room for more.
