Generosity In Business
If you can, give away some of your best ideas for free, then challenge yourself to come up with newer, better ones.
This is not only great philanthropy, it is also good business sense.
When you allow some of your ideas to be taken and improved upon, you breathe life into those ideas. You breathe life into the world around you.
Greatest of all, you breathe life into the very fabric of your being. You cultivate the creative, hyper-abundant mindset required to generate the really big, paradigm-shifting ideas.
The alternative is to play it small, channeling your energy into notions such as intellectual property and patent infringement. But really, how dreary is that?
In the end of course, it's healthy to have a blend of openness and guardedness. Too much of either can be problematic. The best we can do is to monitor our unique blend wisely, making adjustments along the way as necessary.
