"If It's Such A Good Idea, Why Didn't Someone Think Of It Before?"

Whenever there is a break-
through idea, there are the naysayers.

What does so-and-so say about the idea?

That's never going to work.

Why, that's not how we do things around here!

You and your ideas! You'd better let the "experts" handle this.

That project of yours will never amount to anything.

The chance of it working are so slim, one might as well not even try.

Maybe they are so beaten down, it's easier to criticize a good idea. Or maybe they are out of ideas, or they are wedded to an idea that is obsolete. They either can't see it, or won't; either way, we should not look to them for leadership. They are followers. Perhaps disgruntled followers. But, followers just the same.

Leaders and innovators have vision; they have ideas. Sometimes they just need a little help getting the good idea off the ground. They need a few people to work with them, for everyone's benefit.

It's even easier to be a naysayer.
