Just because it makes sense in your head doesn’t mean it makes sense.
In fact, the moment when it makes sense in your head is the time to question if it makes sense at all.
Getting it – the conversation, the idea, the next sentence – from your head and out of your mouth or onto the page is another thing entirely.
And that’s the moment when you have to rely on others to help you explore, challenge and expand your new idea if you’re going to make any sense of it.
Your next “great thought” will not be fully formed. That’s as it should be.
Test it out with people who will make it better. Be committed to making it better.
