Best ways to kill an idea
Surefire ways to crush, kill or otherwise choke the life out of any idea. Or, how to demoralize your peers.
- Ignore it or its proponent. It might just die from lack of creative oxygen.
- Criticize it. Nothing shuts people up better, or more quickly, than feeling marginalized.
- List all the ways the idea is doomed to failure.
- List all the reasons why it didn't work before, and therefore won't work now.
- Call it a stupid idea. Which, by inference, means the person who came up with the idea is stupid too. That is what you meant, right?
