And - one of the things that please me the most is seeing other people using ‘my’ ideas. Recently a couple of books which I think are genuinely significant seemed to have little bits in them that I don’t think would have been quite the same if it wasn’t for something I’d written, and this week Steve Shorrock did a great piece which flipped my ‘four quadrants of thinking threats’ into positives for ‘the spread of ideas’.
Of course, nothing is any one person’s idea - the two book ‘influences’ were the results of conversation and of a blog post where others contributed more than my original post, respectively, and ‘my’ four quadrants thing came out of a SCiO board meeting. But it is nice to feel that one has had some positive influence - perhaps inspiration to finish my big writing project… one of these days ;-)
