Say it Aloud First (in a safe place)

Advice on preparing to bring a concept to others.

I have a great idea! I have a informed observation! I have something that others should hear or read! It’s obviously worthwhile. What should I do first?

Say it aloud (in a safe place).

There is something about saying the words aloud that helps me understand how others might react to my insight of brilliance. Try it.

And, say it aloud in a safe place, i.e., one where anyone who hears me understands what I am doing, gives me the benefit of doubt, and knows that I might drop the whole thing.
