“Make a bold hypothesis and disprove it.”
– Karl Popper

Twirling a pen

Recently it feels like I keep having conversations with folks who are afraid of their own imaginations. You know? I’m writing the following list to remind myself why I believe you and I both need bullshit. I won’t claim it’s original.

  1. If you don’t value your idea, neither will anyone else.
  2. Just because you value your idea doesn’t make it valuable to others.
  3. Always iterate, because your idea is bullshit.

In my head, the cycle works like this:
bullshit > create > iterate.

Good things grow out of manure. Keep at it.
