Today’s Smart Thought is by an anonymous author. It speaks of the power of ideas. The ability of an idea to change the world is well known. Most recently, think of the internet. It was designed for the government to be able to communicate in the event of nuclear war, but it has managed to change society and business forever.
Think of John Kennedy’s challenge that we reach the moon. Most certainly we did that, but the technology developed to get us there made dramatic changes in all sorts of industry, and in our lives.
Ideas are powerful. Ideas can change the world, but once the spark turns to fire, there is often no turning back.
