Idea Inspiration for Folks in the Idea Business
As social-venture entrepreneurs, OneSeventeen Media is in the idea business. Our friend Lucy Bernholz shared a “55 Ideas on Ideas” slideshow over on Philanthropy 2173, and I enjoyed getting to take a minute peruse the variety of perspectives in relevance to OneSeventeen Media’s work. Three that stand out for me:
“Great ideas often receive violent opposition from mediocre minds.” Albert Einstein. [What I think Einstein might have had to say to those “mediocre minds” pictured above.]
“Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one’s thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.” Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
“An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come.” Victor Hugo
Life in the tech-start-up-fast-lane isn’t for wimps, and our team is convicted that the time has come to make relevant, social-emotional tools available to digital natives confronting the challenges of growing up.
I’m curious if any of our readers or anyone else on our team has some words of wisdom they turn to for inspiration? It’d be great if you’re willing to share them in the comments!
