Have you ever claimed to have the next billion dollar idea? I think we all have. There’s a lesson to be learned in that. One route is that you fail to pursue the opportunity, which requires its own breakdown, but the other side of it is that a “billion dollar idea” actually fails. This is because not all good ideas are a good opportunity. No one would know this better than our favorite pitch expert and former SISD guest Brant Pinvidic.
So, I hope that all makes sense. it’s about bringing something into fruition not just starting and getting close. There’s a genius to understanding that, of the 8 billion dollar ideas we have, they still need the right timing, the right team, and the right context. It’s about having the awareness to know if there’s more fuel to the idea than just the concept. This translates to life and life opportunities. Just because something is available to you doesn’t always mean you should pursue it. It’s a fine line between humility and ambition that we’re all quantifying for ourselves.
