Idea Swapping & Today's People Skills Video Tip

This quote is old from A.S. Gregg (it uses the word shilling) however it is great none the less – so I will replace the word shilling with dollar and it’s the exact way I want to live – it’s actually what is making the morning calls wonderful – here’s the quote – “You have a dollar. I have a dollar. We swap. You have my dollar and I have yours. We are no better off. But suppose you have an idea and I have an idea. We swap. Now you have two ideas and I have two ideas. We have increased our stock of ideas 100 per cent.”

Who can you share ideas with today? How can you give some and increase your value and the value of others?

To nudge your creativity and get ideas flowing here are a few ideas that others have put out which may spark some new thinking…
