Idea guys are the lifeblood of any organization. They are the innovators and inspiration of the brotherhood. All too often though I have witnessed brothers with fantastic ideas, but they don't want to share them because they want to make sure they get the credit for implementing them.
This is the worst possible attitude. If you really believe what fraternity is about, then you want the fraternity to improve and you don't care who gets the credit. However, you must also realize that you will get recognized for your creativity. Your brothers will know where the great idea came from, and this will elevate your status in the chapter.
So don't hold onto the great ideas that can take your chapter to the next level. Share them with your brothers and work together to make them a reality. Your fraternity experience will be richer if you do.
