It's because they don't think it IS a good idea, isn't it? Or maybe it's because they need all of the ideas to be THEIR ideas. Or maybe they are not thinking it thru.
There is no point to it. Holding a good idea down will likely strengthen its wings inviting it to fly somewhere else. Then, freed, it can't help you.
Open up to those wild ideas. Let your creative side prosper and teach your other sides to listen. Suppressing a good idea is only temporary control. Let go.
