Made To Stick

Today I was reading Chapter 6 of Made to Stick. While reading, I came across a quote that caught my attention and opened my eyes a little bit more. The quote even made me go one Facebook and post it as my status LOL. The quote said “A Credible Idea Makes People Believe, A Emotional Idea Makes People Care.” I feel that this quote expresses how people are receptive to certain ideas. If you develop strategies to gain people‘s interest and develop an understanding of what your are trying to express to people, then the idea wins itself. You will then have the window of opportunity to work towards that idea, accomplish what your idea expressed, and prove how it is an asset.  As far as the emotional part of an idea concerned, this means if you show that you have passion into your idea, people will be more prone to accept it, but if you show that you had no thought into the idea or show that you don’t care, then you can easily lose people or recognize disinterest. This will be at a disadvantage because those people could have had valuable feedback for your idea and you lost an opportunity for an idea success. I say always have thought into your ideas, show that you have a plan, and show interest and passion. It will definitely keep people engaged.
