Friends I stumbled onto the Greatest Mother’s Day gift ever today. Sadly this information comes far too late for me to order it for the mothers in my life.
Yes it is the Squatty Potty and as you can see I missed the deadline so proper pooping techniques will have to be provided by some other soul.
Surely it is as useful as learning how to hard boil eggs.
Granted I am intrigued by bathroom products, because those of us who suffer aÂ little digestive distress from the wrath ofÂ Chicken Vindaloo pay attention to these kinds of things.
The Greatest Mother’s Day Gift Ever?
Friends some of you might think this is a crappy post but I promise you it is the sort of useful crap you can learn from.
What you have here is proof that there is an unlimited pool of business ideas that people are pulling from various places on our bodies and though I may not be taking them ass seriously as I could we don’t know whether they are working or not.
Meaning that without looking into the books we don’t know if these products are thriving or failing. They may sound silly, ridiculous and foolish to some but to others they may be brilliant.
Smart businesses meet the needs of their customers and there may be quite a few in need of these.
When I work with my children on brainstorming I tell them to write down everything and anything they can think of which is no different than what I do professionally.
The main difference between the two is that the kids don’t worry about looking foolish the way adults do. They don’t set the same limitations upon what they share and what they think is possible.
Creativity is Critical
I am a writer and marketer by trade. Some would say that creativity is critical for my work and I would agree but I wouldn’t limit it my work because I see creativity as being critical to people in general. Creativity and imagination are things that help all people personally and professionally.
It is where we find new ways to do things and give ourselves more hope for the future. Is that goofy, screwy and cliche like? Yeah, Â it is but there is truth there.
Our ability to try to see beyond our limits, to reach for the impossible and improbable and to vocalize those things is what will distinguish us from others.
Some of those dreams may not be realistic. Some may not be useful, practical, viable or necessary but I would rather seem them shared then swallowed.
Because I think there is gold in there. Won’t lie and say I don’t hope to be the one to come up with it but wouldn’t hurt for others to figure something out either.
It doesn’t always have to be something revolutionary like a smartphone either. Sometimes all you need is a simple tool that makes simple tasks easier to do for everyone.
What do you think?
