If you want to be original you need first to get rid of all of your obvious things. You can born gifted, always rich in ideas and inventions but it’s more likely that you were born like any other human being. Naked, vulnerable, and clueless. Being original as in innovative is something you develop. Only by having a lot of obvious and weak ideas you can come up with interesting ideas. And that happens only if you work in the right feedback loop, by assessing the validity of your ideas by testing them against the right challenge and by learning from what you observe during that collision.
Being original, innovative means having the courage of letting go of your banality. If you have respect for yourself you do it in private. If you want to learn out of their lack of usefulness, you do it in public.
This was my 341st idea assessment in public.
