Share your ideas (often)

Today’s creative tip of the day is about sharing your ideas, especially when it feels uncomfortable.

Author and designer Frank Chimero once wrote: “If ideas go anywhere it’s because other people carry them.”

Your ideas can’t travel and evolve unless they’re shared. Whether that’s through talking with a friend, drawing a simple sketch, or presenting a rough version of the idea.

It feels safe to keep ideas wrapped up or hidden, so nobody steals our good ones or laughs at our bad ones. But in reality we don’t know which of our ideas are really good and which are bad. We need to help the ideas evolve, expand, and move by getting them out into the world.

Today, share one idea you’ve been holding back on and see what happens as a result.
