The biggest project I have been part of so far is Vök baths.
For sure that project would not have become reality had the idea not been shared.
When I moved to East Iceland I heard first about the idea of building small bathing area, that would be open for all with very minimal facilities and no service.
My first thought was why not build something bigger that could attract people to East Iceland and created jobs.
When I started asking around about the project I found out it had been circulating for over many years but nothing had been done to start it. Soon I found out other people thinking about it in the same way as I and we created group of three people in 2013 and started working on this idea.
We meet everyThursday evening for over six years and finally in 2019 Vök Baths opened. In the process we shared our idea with a lot of people. We meet all sorts of people and investors and talked about what we wanted to do. We were very lucky with the investors that came on board and the idea moved up many levels from what our plan was.
My experience from this is no one of us three would have made this possible by them self, but between us we had all sorts of skills and qualities needed that made us a very good team to get this idea to a place of no return.
Sharing ideas and working together is key to make ideas reality. We all have ideas but most of the time we do not have all that is needed to make them happen. So at some stage we need to share them, tell someone about that. The process most of the time makes the idea better. It is scrutinised, criticised, added to and made better.
So from my experience it is far better sharing ideas than keeping them locked up in your mind. I am sure there are far more ideas that never become reality because people are frightened of sharing them, than ideas that are actually stolen
