I always find the challenge is holding onto an idea long enough to really consider its worth and determine what action might be required to test its feasibility.
Too often one idea gets displaced by another before any action is taken and in the past I’ve often been left with a trail of ‘would have, could have, should have’ vague ideas that fizzled out like fireworks after their initial bedazzlement.
Recently this has changed for me. I’ve developed a process that helps me to make a conscious and deliberate decision on whether to pursue an idea to its end point or not. It’s not rocket science but sometimes the simple and obvious approach isn’t always, well obvious.
Anyway, here’s what I do.
I’ve found following these steps incredibly useful. You may find them useful too. Whatever the case I hope it helps you start thinking about what you can do with those ideas that keep formulating in your head.
The value of an idea lies in the using of it. Thomas Edison
