I have this idea for a business. I'll slip a business card into cashier's tray, or behind stock in the aisles, or into a manager's breast pocket. I'll call myself a security consultant, or security engineer. I'll be like a penetration tester for the physical world. Do you think it's a good idea?

I think that would just result in you being made in to another sort of penetration tester during your 3-5 stretch for assault or theft.

I tried to start a Journal Club and a Psychology Clinic though my university. Turned out lots of people were interested in helping me make the vision, but nobody else would lead the charge. I just wanted to gift the idea to other people. *sigh*, guess neither will be realised. I wish there was a place for me to just dump my ideas rather than implementing them. Like an image board. Is that appropriate?

No because that's just a way to be lazy instead of following through on your ideas.

Whenever I hear this "I just want to be the idea guy and let someone else lead the charge!" thing from someone, it always just sounds like fear to me. If it doesn't work, it's not your fault, because you're just the idea generator, you have nothing to do with the execution. It also doesn't require any real work or effort. It's an awful, passive way to feel smart while protecting your fragile ego from even the vaguest possibility of failure.

Would you rather accomplish something and build something real, or trick yourself into feeling like you're smart by coming up with ideas and then doing nothing with them?

Be a person who shuts the fuck up and makes things happen instead of the guy who is all talk about his amazing ideas and then does absolutely fuck all with them and goes nowhere.

I feel like this is the advice I've been waiting for all my laugh.

I'd rather not bookmark this 99chan, which will probably get lost in some server problem in a couple of months, so do you know anywhere else on the net where what yu have said is paraphrased?

Would this work for you?
