It seems people are always waiting for someone else in order to authenticate and launch a new idea. These people want and/or need permission.
Better to be the person who takes the idea and attempts to make it work. Sure there’ll be mistakes (perhaps a lot of mistakes), but great things do not come into completion without bumps along the way.
Whenever a new idea is introduced there are naysayers: “That’s never been done before… The text doesn’t really mean that… the earth can’t revolved around the sun!”
Those who don’t wait for permission know listening to the majority is death for good ideas. Better to nod politely when faced with the ineffective status quo and get back to doing your work.
