She stole my idea

It came to me just like a flash: it was a problem that needed a solution. The idea that flashed through my head was the problem but that was enough to set me on the right track to thinking of the solution. I was feeling great.

The very next day, as I sat at my laptop, I went through my Facebook timeline. Somewhere on there was a shared video link that caught my eyes. I decided to watch it. In horror, I looked at someone who had taken that same idea I had and transformed it into a solution.

That wasn’t the first time I had an idea and later found out it had been done and I don’t like the conversation that follows in my head after such discoveries. In this case it went:

Me: “She stole my idea.”

The other me (the wise show-off): “Right”

You see, an idea is nothing until it is developed. And if you have had a similar experience, you know how painful that can be. The morale is this: Ideas are fleeting; once you get them, start them off (after the necessary feasibility study).

Food for thought:

An ‘unplanted’ seed will remain a seed.

Life nugget:

If you don’t do it, someone else will.
