There is nothing on earth more powerful than an idea
Ideas produce everything the paper that you reading was first an idea these written words were first an idea this event is also an idea. Everything on earth product of ideas we do not think much about the concept of idea but idea is source of everything
We are living in a century of idea diffusion. Those people who can spread ideas, regardless of what those ideas are, win.

Many important ideas have very long incubation periods -- We have heard a lot recently about hunch and instinct and blink-like sudden moments of clarity, but in fact, many great ideas linger on, sometimes for decades, in the back of people's minds. They have a feeling that there is an interesting problem, but they do not quite have the tools yet to discover them. They spend all this time working on certain problems, but there is another thing lingering there that they are interested in, but they cannot quite solve they just need that motivation to come up with their own ideas.

Brain with ideas inside

Our conventional metaphors and language steers us towards certain concepts of idea-creation. We have this very rich vocabulary to describe moments of inspiration. We have the kind of the flash of insight, the stroke of insight; we have "eureka!"= "I get it" moments, we have the light bulb moments, right? All of these concepts, as kind of rhetorically florid as they are, share this basic assumption, which is that an idea is a single thing; it is something that happens often in a wonderful illuminating moment.
This is what we ended up coming with. We have the concept, but unable of fully thinking it yet. Just need a little clue, a little help and that is actually how great ideas often happen; they fade into view over long periods of time.

Somehow, we have to understand ourselves to get around our flaws. We can think of ourselves as kind of a noisy channel. We cannot learn to see until we admit we are blind. Once you start down at this very humble level, then you can start finding ways to see things. Once you find a guide, you find way

The ideas aren't born they made

Newton and the apple, when Newton was at Cambridge. You know, you are sitting there thinking a deep thought, and the apple falls from the tree, and you have the theory of gravity.


TEDxNahdaU aims to take ideas from other people, from people we have learned from, from people left impact on our lives, from those who are extremely successful. Then stitch them together into new forms to create something new. That is really how we get our ways and where success happens.

A few years ago, a wonderful researcher named Kevin Dunbar decided to go around to figuring out where good ideas come from. He went to a bunch of science labs around the world and videotaped everyone as they were doing every little bit of their job. So when they were sitting in front of the microscope, talking to their colleague, and all these things. He recorded all of these conversations and tried to figure out where the most important ideas, where they happened.
When Dunbar looked at the tape, in fact, almost none of the important breakthrough ideas happened alone in the lab, in front of the microscope. They happened at the conference table at the weekly lab meeting, when everybody got together and shared their kind of latest data and findings, oftentimes when people shared the mistakes they were having, the error, the noise in the signal they were discovering. And something about that environment

That is exactly what we are going to do. We will get you and get other great people share their experiences with ideas to turn your mind on with an amazing environment, Fun environment with interesting speakers and performers

Have you ever wondered how to get a great idea?
How to generate ideas??! Ideas are not simply lying around like seashells on a beach waiting for us to pick them up nor are they so random. Good ideas are the result of the focused action that takes place in our brains. With a bit of motivation and a lot of imagination, we will start a story about how all those bits and pieces that pass through our brains can become good ideas. We will start an Event
Most idea are born and lost in isolation "Scott Belsky Making ideas happen"
The best way to have a good idea is to have many ideas "Linus Pauling noble prize winner"
Everyone has a fate but every fate ends up as your ideas"
Place yourself in a pleasing and interesting environment that helps your mind to be opened insides
where good ideas come from is where (TedxnahdaU) exists.
