Good People and Good Ideas

I, like many people have ideas and thoughts that pop into my head.  I have decided to write down (the ones that are publishable and legal), so I don’t forget them and they may be of assistance to you.

Creativity, Inc. book cover by Ed Catmull

So recently I have been listening to ‘Creativity, Inc’  by Ed Catmull former head of Pixar and Disney Animation, and this is one of the things that stood out for him. I love audiobooks.

So what the most critical element in business, good people, or good ideas, if you had to choose one?  

The answer is, and it is the only answer – Good People all day every day.

Give great people a mediocre idea, and what will they do?

They will make the idea great or 

They will decide it is not good enough and come up with a better idea. 

Give great people a great idea and step back and watch the amazing happen.
