How can you measure whether an idea is good or bad?
Ideas come by the billions but by themselves are just thoughts and have no tangible value. It matters what you can do with them, and the intention behind them. It also depends what you mean by good or bad… So-called bad ideas can be the best learning tools you’ve ever had in your life - they also make the best stories! Most of our life lessons come from our epic failures and something that seems like a good idea at the time can turn out pretty bad in the long run and ruin an entire generation - like Facebook algorithms or even worse, TikTok challenges.
FOOLS AND TOOLS
It is an intentional effort to remove unconscious layers of your so-called self until you discover who and what you really are. It’s about healing yourself, one layer at a time until you become an integrated, connected whole person again. It’s not about turning into something new, it is about releasing old habits, heuristics, thought and behaviour patterns, it is about moving from automation to intention. What happens inside, you can start to see on the outside...
