If you asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up, I would not know. Unlike some people, I never wanted to do just that one thing. Instead, I loved exploring. And so I did. I spent my childhood doing sports, reading, papercraft, and more.
However, I could not see myself doing any of those things for a living as it would mean having to leave the other ones. Luckily, I found out there is a purpose for people like me. I call it idea babysitting. This is because ideas resemble children growing up.
When an idea is born, it starts off as a feeble and insignificant noise in our brain. We have many thoughts every day. Most of them die before they develop into anything serious; we simply forget about them. As a result, it is quite possible that daily, we miss out on many great ideas.
The ideas that learn to walk have to face a strong resistance. We are programmed to do our best to prevent these novel, daring thoughts from disrupting our comfort zone. Even if they could improve many people's lives.
It takes a lot for an idea to make it to puberty. But once it gets there, it starts to grow. Out of all those ideas, it was this one that was strong enough to survive. Now we cannot stop thinking about it.
The final act is where the idea gets completed. This is the hardest step. Most ideas never happen as they don't even get started. And apart from the internal resistance, there are also external forces against it. So if an idea is to live, it needs a strong parent or guardian capable of bringing it into this world.
I enjoy identifying the most promising ideas and babysitting them on their journey to adulthood. While investing is an interest of mine, I was not endowed with the wealth, so I need to work on that detail first. In the meantime, I talk about already existing ideas at Early Stage.
"Where is the call to action, Lubos?" Good question, I'm glad you asked. I am always interested in making friends with interesting or ambitious people. If that's you, I invite you to press the button below.
