“I have an idea”

Two people walk into their bosses offices with an idea

One says “I think we should do X,Y and Z”.

The other says “I think we should do X, Y and Z, and I’m willing to do the planning, get this organized, work out the budget and get this done”

Which of these two are more likely to get their suggestion approved?

Anyone can make a suggestion. If you want people to take your suggestion seriously, you need to have the suggestion, a plan to execute and the willingness to take ownership of the process. Otherwise, you are just creating more work for others.

Have a great day!
