It’s easy to surround yourself with people who tell you that your idea is brilliant. If you are fortunate to actually have a brilliant idea then everything will be good. The problem is when the people around you suspect your idea isn’t very good but because they don’t want to hurt your feelings, they tell you it’s a brilliant idea anyway.
Make sure you surround yourself with people willing and able to tell you an idea is stupid, when it truly is a stupid idea. If the people around you aren’t able to be honest with you, they serve no purpose at all…and that is stupid.
Have a great day!
