Give Your Ideas
Ideas Are Valuable
Many of the things around us are the result of an idea someone acted
on. The conveniences we have are the result of an idea. Companies have
been built on the foundation of someone's idea. Many millionaires and
billionaires got started on their path to wealth with an idea. Is there
any doubt about the value an idea can have?
God blessed each of us with the miracle of our minds and the capacity
to generate unlimited ideas. You have the capacity within you to create
valuable ideas. There are ideas only you can create. No one else has
the same memory and experiences you have. Use just a portion of your
mind to help others and create a better world.
How to Generate Ideas
We obviously use our minds throughout the day. But intentionally
setting aside small blocks of time to brainstorm ideas can produce
fantastic results. Use these tips to get started:

Do your brainstorming
during the time of day and in an environment you are most creative.
Decide on a topic or
problem you want to generate ideas for.
Record everything you
think about. Do not evaluate your ideas until you are done
Carry a notepad or
recorder wherever you go. Record any ideas you have when they first
come to you. You will be surprised when the ideas come to you once you
have a purpose.
You can do it by
yourself but doing it as a part of a team is even better.
and donate ideas expecting to get something in return (except the good
feelings that come with giving).
