Ideas or caring?

I’m Johnnie Moore, and I help people work better together

As an experiment, for the last day I’ve been running a search for the #innovation hashtag in my Twitter app, Tweetdeck. It generates a lot of interesting material.

And this morning it strikes me, and not for the first time: there is no shortage of ideas out there. Somewhere, perhaps on the fringes, someone has likely already had the idea you may think you’re looking for.

Ideas are not the problem.

Getting clear about what we really care about so we actually want to act on an idea – that may be more of a challenge.

Just throwing it out there.
