When have you ever heard of a genius asking permission to make a great revolutionary leap?
Did Steve Jobs ask IBM if it was “okay” if he could create a personal computer?
Did Mozart ever ask if it was “okay” if he composed a piece?
Did Oscar Wilde or Friedrich Nietzsche ever ask if it was “okay” if they wrote philosophy?
Genius doesn’t ask, it just does. It feels the tinge of creative impulse and it cannot contain itself, it just does.
In business, no one is going to be the gatekeeper for your ideas but yourself. You are the gatekeeper. You are the only one with control over your destiny.
