Today’s Principle to Follow:
Principle #35: When You Get a Great Idea, Ask Yourself if the Timing is Right to Execute it.
Will the public be ready for you idea? Imagine that you are living around the time of 1800 in Europe, a time when classical music was popular. If classical music was all you had ever heard, would you be interested in jazz, or techno, or hip-hop? It would probably seem to wild and crazy,m and maybe even hurt your ears. We learn to adapt to what is new, often through a gradual process, not in giant leaps. If an idea is too advanced, too far ahead of its time, the public often won’t understand the use, or them may not believe that it’s really possible.
Even if someone came out with an invention to teleport us tomorrow, would you really be willing to try it out so quickly? Maybe it would make sense if we progressed through decades from teleporting nano-particles, to molecules, to flies, to rodents. But to just all of a sudden have a mechanism for teleporting people safely seems unbelievable. when you get a great idea, ask yourself if the public is ready. Is this an idea they can relate to and understand? Ir is there a way you can convince them that your idea solves a problem they have.
