The person who says there's no such thing as a bad idea has obviously never put a knife in a plugged-in toaster to flick out a jammed Pop-Tart.

There are bad ideas. In fact, I reckon every idea starts that way.

An idea, is like a cheque, yet to be signed.

The value, with all of its zeros — all of its potential riches — but a signature short.

That signature is the commitment. A willingness to take action. A crack at making the idea happen.

Be sceptical of 'ideas people'. Ideas are hunches and assumptions. Ideas don't make you rich and they don't make you clever.

Ideas are blank, worthless cheques — until they're signed.
