It may not seem so, but it is more important to get noticed, than to it is have ideas to solve problems. Unless you are a world-shifting writer/artist/ scientist... there is very little you can accomplish just by yourself. Almost everything else needs groups of people working together and supporting each other.
There is a need to excite people around you. Friends, employees, volunteers, customers, sponsors, investors, critics, voters, administrators... you have to get them to listen to you and you can do that only if you are visible. That opens up the possibility of you communicating with people and getting a reaction. Whether they give a positive or negative reaction is a different matter. Whether you are being intrusive or not, also is a different matter. All that comes into play only after you show up on that notification window or email or word of mouth or phone call or poster or announcement or infomercial or radio ...
What are you going to solve if no one knows you? Who cares what you have to offer if you "don't exist"? What great things can you accomplish if you can't win other people's trust?
