Budding: (adj) developing buds in the normal growth process
Ideas may be our worst enemies.
We honor ideas too much. We are afraid to abandon them when the budding of a new possibility appears before our eyes. We feel a false sense of loyalty–especially true when it’s our own brainchild.
Therefore, we fail to question what is already unraveling, innovate that which is archaic, and simply laugh off things we have planned which are ridiculous.
We should be looking for the greening of an idea–some evidence that the planted seed is actually breaking through the soil, reaching to live.
Most people spend too much time visiting their ideas, which they buried, and now, rather than becoming a garden, resemble a graveyard.
