Imagining great new ways to do things . . .
Fabulous techniques for getting MORE business . . .
or increasing productivity such that you can do more with LESS effort and time
How ’bout ideas that have GAME CHANGING POTENTIAL?
The problem with ideas is not the fault of the ideas . . . It’s got everything to do with the imaginer’s ability to IMPLEMENT.
How many great ideas have you had on which you never took action . . . only to discover later that someone else had the same idea at the same time and DID it and are now sitting on a pile of money which you would then say “That should be ME!“???
Today is REBarCamp Nashville. I showed up at the beginning and left @ noon – 3 hours later . . . The event is still under way (til 5).
Why did I leave?
It wasn’t because the event and the people weren’t FANTASTIC – They ARE!
It was because my idea alarm sounded off in my head and told me to GET OUT of there before more ideas crowded into my head thereby lulling me into inaction (overwhelm) with a “Failure to Launch” brain freeze.
At noon, I had JUST the right number of great ideas in my head.
TWO to be precise . . .
Those two ideas – If implemented – I truly believe will make a significant difference in my business and my quality of life.
It’s as simple as that.
So . . . Protect yourself from idea overload . . .
As Clint Eastwood would say: “A man’s GOT to know his limitations”
Know yours . . . and IMPLEMENT IMPLEMENT IMPLEMENT!
PS – If this message is hitting you too late (Your brain is already scrambled), STOP. Sit down in a quiet place. Assign a name to every one of the ideas in your head . . . Prioritize them from Best to worst . . . Pick the TOP 2, and move them to implementation . . . Put the rest into a “Dream Folder” and stick it on the shelf. 🙂
