Ideas that must die Pt.1

all good ideas must die

So far, in this podcast, we’ve discussed the possibilities of ideas that if created would improve the world. On this episode we flip the script, rather than asking if a new idea is a good one, we ask whether it’d be better if some of the ideas we cling to were killed off.

All good ideas must die (so that great ideas might live). With that said, similar to how you kill stupid rules to innovate, what ideas, if eliminated, would improve our life?

On this episode we considered killing the following ideas:

  • Fast food;
  • Career ladder;
  • Degrees;
  • Ownership;
  • Banks;
  • Needing all the resources in the world to survive;
  • Advertising;
  • Cost of travel.

This is part 1 of 2, so tell us, what else should we kill?
