But did nothing with it.
So that’s all it ever remained, was an Idea.,
Until someone else did it and then it became a product, a story, a book that you had but never executed on.
So instead of an idea it became a plan that worked.
But as you lament your idea that had a 100% success rate, what you didn’t see, were how many iterations and ideas that person went through to implement your idea.
It’s not the idea that was the success, it was all the previous attempts that made it a success.
