There is something to be said for the ability to illustrate concepts to others.
I feel like every time I try to explain something to someone, I learn the concept all over again. Maybe I see something I didn’t before. Maybe I find a way to explain it clearer. Maybe I find out my concept is wrong! Whatever the case, I love talk about ideas with people…even if they think it’s a crappy idea.
I think we all need to spend more time talking; collaborating. The sharing of ideas, breaking down and rebuilding concepts; that is why we have many of the things around us today. Who doesn’t like a good brainstorming session?
“Never invest in any idea you can’t illustrate with a crayon.”
