fighting the lack of good ideas

get others to do the work for you, but always take the credit – law 7 – #48laws by robert greene

Law 7

Use the wisdom, knowledge, and legwork of other people to further your own cause. Not only wil such assitance save you valuable time and energy, it will give you a godlike aura of efficiency and speed. In the end your helpers will be forgotten and you will be remembered. Never do yourself what others can do for you. –Robert Greene, The 48 Laws of Power (review)
