      Clarke's Law of Great Ideas

    Every great idea creates four distinct phases in the mind of your boss:

    • "It is impossible - don't waste my time."
    • "It is possible, but it is not worth doing."
    • "I said it was a good idea all along."
    • "Members of the board, here is my idea."
