The Idea Funnel

Nice essay this morning on Medium about the idea funnel. The money quote:

“If you want to have good ideas you must have many ideas.
Most of them will be wrong, and what you have to learn is
which ones to throw away.”

Linus Pauling

This is a great reminder about the dangers of falling in love with your own ideas and settling on a direction without evaluating it against lots of other potential directions. The author, Stef Lewandowski, has a great quote of his own about taking the approach of “Strong idea, loosely held”

Short read and a nice reminder. Check it out here.
