Don’t Leave a Great Idea Sitting Here!
A friend from my days in publishing has thousands of ideas to every one of mine. Being with her is both exciting and frustrating, because she imagines potential futures, but can’t see whether they’ll play out usefully.
On the Internet, it seems that everyone has thousands of ideas . . . even me. With so much information and conversation around us, each day brings a passel of potential futures to discuss and dream.
We learn about how to build things. We talk about what we could do and be. We imagine repurposing what already is. We innovate, create, and ideate, almost without thinking.
The problem is that too often we don’t DO anything.
If the idea is as great as we think it is, why don’t we build it, create it, execute, and deliver it?
Some ideas can’t stand up the stress of such things. They start unraveling.
Other ideas could be wonderful futures but no one cares enough to produce what they describe. Doing something is where the real work begins. We have to show up, step up, and invest ourselves to build a reality.
What will you DO with your ideas today?
