What Do You Do With An Idea?


I have a confession to make.  Even though I have two young children and could have bought a really good book for them, I really bought it for me.  This book is made for kids but it speaks to adults, to all of us.

It’s called What Do You Do With An Idea? by Kobi Yamada and illustrated by Mae Besom.  This book has attracted me to it over the past few months.  Every time I would wander through a bookstore I’d inevitably come to its display.  I think I ran into it at four different stores and I finally gave into my compulsion to buy it.

I’m so happy I did.  I think it is one of the all-time best children’s books, right up there with The Little Engine That Could and any Dr. Seuss of Curious George tale.  My kids, upon reading it to them, loved it.

This book pays homage to each of us who have an idea but don’t know what to do with it. It speaks to how we fear sharing ideas with others.. It covers how we can’t bare to find that others don’t believe in our ideas. It also revealshow wonderful an idea can really be when it’s allowed to blossom.

We worry how others will react to our ideas and if they’ll reject them.  We wonder if our ideas are really any good and struggle to find a way to turn them into a reality.

But we tend to fall in love with our ideas and they don’t disappear so easily.  We want the ideas to keep coming, to grow, and to turn into something amazing.

The book encourages us to dream big and often and to accept that our ideas could become a real gift to the world.  Each of us could change the world with one good idea.

My favorite passage in the book says the following:
“I liked being with my idea.  It made me feel more alive, like I could do anything.  It encouraged me to think big… and then, to think bigger.

“It shared its secrets with me.  It showed me how to walk on my hands.  “Because,” it says, “It is good to have the ability to see things differently.”

If you have an idea, explore it, share it, act on it.
