I am one of those people who believe that ideas were meant to be shared. Because in sharing ideas, new ideas emerge. :)
From Paul Arden:
DO NOT COVET YOUR IDEAS.
Give away everything you know, and more will come back to you.
You will remember from school other students preventing you from seeing their answers by placing their arms around their exercise book or exam paper.
It is the same at work, people are secretive with ideas. ‘Don’t tell them that, they’ll take credit for it.’
The problems with hoarding is you end up living off your reserves. Eventually you’ll become stale.
If you give away everything you have, you are let with nothing. This forces you to look, to be aware, to replenish.
Somehow the more you give away the more comes back to you.
Ideas are open knowledge. Don’t claim ownership.
They’re not your ideas anyway, they’re someone else’s. They are out there floating by on the ether.
You just have to put yourself in a frame of mind to pick them up.
To look at it from another angle, though, I suspect what I’m really against is what that term “graphic design” has come to represent, i.e. synonymous with business cards, logos, identities and advertising, and, again simply put, those are things I’m just not interested in. To me that idea of “graphic design” is as far removed from my interests as being a milkman or a lawyer. In fact, I’d rather be a milkman.
If your candidate didn’t win, it’s okay. Don’t feel too bad. Don’t feel bad that majority of the people in our country voted for somebody you didn’t vote for. That’s democracy.
It is also very wrong to judge the people who didn’t vote for your candidate as “bobo” or “tanga”. Who are we to judge them? I’m pretty sure we are not “clean” ourselves. ;)
Tama si One Tama.
Pick one issue that is most important to you, and then pick the candidate who can address this issue best. If you do that, then you made the right choice. ;)
