🎭 They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
If creativity plays a key role in your job, you are very jealous of what you invent every day.
💡 When you find the right words or come up with an original idea, you are happy with your result and want to protect it.
What can spoil your happiness? The fact that someone else appreciates your idea and then passes it off as their own, perhaps with slight modifications.
😡 First, of course, you get angry.
Lately, however, I have started to see it differently; imitation is annoying, but maybe it means your idea works!
