Why Your Ideas Need Help!
Your ideas suck, when you turn them into orphans. Meaning you create the idea (the parent) then you abandon the idea (the child).
Your ideas need your help!
The practice of tapping into your creativity regularly, will make your personal ideation process easier. The more you think through that fleeting idea, the more ideas you will generate.
Ever notice how a child can come up with the most wild and creative stories so easily? It’s because they think through the possibility of their ideas everyday, all day, and no-one tells them to “Stop thinking like a child!” It’s encouraged! Exploring every idea you have with a child-like energy to get to your adult-like goals, will make you an idea generating machine. Now I’m not saying write a business plan for every concept you dream about. But, consider each one for a moment realistically. Especially the fantastic, an almost impossible ones.
This practice of fanaticizing, or business dreaming is one that proves both to provide to opportunity to educate, and and offer the chance to broaden you base of experiences. Therefore making you a better solutions provider, and strategic thinker. It’s the child-like “What if’s” that lead to innovation, unique solutions, and ultimately more “What if’s!” Those “What if’s,” carve a path directly to your improved business acumen, that path isnt visible for most.
Your ideas need your help! They need your support, your energy, and your commitment to give them some thought. Real thoughts of possibility of execution. Say to yourself, : If I could do this right now, How would I get it done?”
The only great idea, is the one that you feel changes your life!
Some tips to develop yourself into an idea machine:
- Don’t abandon any idea
- If you can, keep a journal of all ideas. (even the silly or possible ones. One day they will prove useful)
- Or, invest in a a cheap digital recorder, or use your phone to record your ideas
- Practice executing every idea in your head
- Review your idea journal weekly for inspiration and confidence that you can create
