To Go Where Your VisionPoints, a few inspiration points for you and your business.

The practical success of an idea, irrespective of its inherent merit, is dependent on the attitude of the contemporaries. If timely it is quickly adopted; if not, it is apt to fare like a sprout lured out of the ground by warm sunshine, only to be injured and retarded in its growth by the succeeding frost.
—Nikola Tesla

Though Tesla probably meant to be a pessimist (as was usual for him) when he said this, there’s a lot of truth in what he says. Following on yesterday’s post, could an optimist make use of Tesla’s “suggestion” to grow their business with less head-banging frustration?

Check that there’s a real market (or a positive “attitude”) for your product or service among your contemporaries early in the process.

If you’ve got a timely idea, you’ve got a heck of a head start—

So worry less about perfecting the concept, more about getting it to market in a timely manner.

It’s not easy, but it is possible, and hey, it’s worth preventing that nasty frostbite for your growing business.


Grow and be well,

Kelly Erickson
