Truly original ideas (good or evil) can be powerful. Once articulated, they take on a life of their own. The best (and worst) of them carry a sense of inevitability, can impact millions of lives and change the world, for better or worse. Like humidity suspended in a cloud, once these ideas condense, they must be unleashed and soak the earth. Fortunately, the vast majority of ideas don’t reek of destiny. They are mediocre, unoriginal and largely unremarkable. Most if not all of the 6,000 thoughts each of us has on any given day are harmless. Like my idea of going out to grab a donut before the day gets too busy. I guess I’ll be on my way before another thought supersedes it and… wait, what was I thinking? Never mind.
