There is always someone who turns off the lights on an idea. As more ideas get formulated, decisions have to be made about which ideas to stay with. The other ideas get extinguished.
Ideas will be suggested while other ideas will be rejected. It is important not to constantly turn off the lights on new ideas because you want to work on old ones. Old dogs can learn new tricks, and you can implement new ideas with your old ideas at the same time.
Don’t always be turning off the lights on new ideas, and tell other people when they are the ones turning off the lights for new ideas. If a business can’t be innovative and still keep its old ideas at the same time, then it’s lights out.
