‘When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very ‘Thingish’ inside you, is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it’
Winnie The Pooh
If you can articulate your goals with others, if you can share your dreams in a way that crystallises your thinking, and if you can do so in a manner which connects with them, it can do wonders for your chances: chances of refinement, chances of improvement and chances of support.
But to do so means to take a risk: risk that your thinking will be ambiguous, that your message will be clumsy and complicated, or that you’ll leave with what you thought was your big idea rubbished.
But that’s ok.
That’s the ride you’re on.
And to be on it gives you the chance to connect and achieve. And sharing your ideas is the firmest test of their substance.
