funny – especially the 0.5% talent and divine inspiration…
Especially worth noting is staying off the internet – you never cease to amaze me David – great post!
Dave, I am not sure you have ever referenced Knowledge at Wharton – a fantastic monthly email that covers all sorts of topics on business, marketing and innovation. This months issue has an article “The Killer Question: Phil McKinney on How to Spark Innovation” that I thought you may find an interesting read after I saw your post this morning.
you may have to sign up to get this but it is well worth it for you and your readers….
Thanks Karen. I’ll check it out. Appreciate it.
Reblogged this on BIMCHILE and commented:
True, true.. (especially the internet thing).
What an interesting topic! However, can I be a spoilsport and propose a different view? In my experience, great ideas are a dime a dozen. The important activity is putting that great idea to use. Let’s see if that great idea can stand up to the onslaught of public exposure. Let’s see if it can withstand the fierce attack of vested interests. Let’s see if the originator has the fortitude to grab it and do something truly worthwhile with it. For example, like Steve Jobs could do.
Signing off to avoid the barrage of slings and arrows coming my way.
So, you drop your great idea and rather than defend it, you run from the slings and arrows!!!!! Love it Charles.
Okay — so you caught me in a bad moment, Dave. The slings and arrows comment was a metaphor about life. I have nothing to fear from the kind and gentle people who comment on your blog.
No, I didn’t drop my great idea. I used it to build a free website of 120 pages and a low-cost ebook of 141 pages. My great idea was to use my revelations and writing talents to help ordinary people empower their lives.
Thanks Charles. Can you point me to your ebook and your site?
Glad to publicize my ideas, Dave.
My free website is at http://www.MoneyMagic1-2-3.com
My ebook sales page is at http://www.MagicSuccessSecrets.com
If you have the time, let me know what you think. I need some honest opinions to help me produce version 2.0 (as the programmers say).
This may be a duplicate posting. I made the first one through my AOL email server and I didn’t see the result being displayed. I’m not sure whether a post has to be approved before being displayed.
Glad for the publicity, Dave. These are the results from my great idea:
My productivity has quadrupled since banning myself from going on the internet until I’ve done at least three hours of work each day on my novel.
Thanks David I really like this!

Yes — Internet. Good Dog Bad Dog. I get inspiration may ways. Here is a little poem I wrote about it:
THE MOW ZONE
If ever I have any doubt
as to where my writing’s going
I find my direction finely tuned
Whenever I am mowing.
Vibrating endlessly across the yard
Atop an old John Deere
It’s amazing the plots and story lines
That come to me out here.
Character, dialogue, points-of-view
of stories never seen
All have risen to the top
on this endless sea of green.
I cannot hear a dog-gone thing
As my tractor blares away
So why not dream of tales unbound
As I mow away the day?
“on this endless sea of green”…Claudia this was terrific!
Claudia, wonderful thoughts! I can picture you laying waste to the sea of green while conjuring up fantastic characters and scenes for your novel.
The effort part involves searching and experimenting and try, try, trying again and again!

Thank you Lu
Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog today. I had a great time and hope I left my campsite clean enough for your next visitor.
Terrific. Thanks for all the LIKES. What a super-ego-booster to see my email box FULL.
Do you want me to just send you about 50 emails each day?
Maybe I could become the Spam King of WordPress. Yes. There’s a goal to set my sights on.
Bring it on!
What are you doing up at 2:12 a.m.? Wait? What am I doing up at 2:12 a.m.?
5:13am for me!
