If you say "I have an idea for something," what you really mean is "I want to change the world in some way." You might not be able to change the entire world, but what is "the world" anyway? It is simply all of the ideas of all our ancestors. Look around you. Your clothes, language, furniture, house, city, and nation all began as visions in other minds. Humans love to create. And creating starts with an idea that can change the world.
"The only reason to give a speech is to change the world." --John F. Kennedy
