Hello, awesome readers!
You may be pleased to know that I almost titled this post “This blog post is about writing but since I don’t mention the word ‘writing’ in the post I’ve decided to mention ‘writing’ three times in the title.”
You may also be pleased to know that I changed my mind at the last minute. This demonstrates both my ability to break rules and my superpower in realizing that perhaps this post is not only for writers. That’s because we ALL get ideas and have things that we want to accomplish. Writers want to write articles and books. Business owners want to invent ways to serve their customers. Chefs want to create the best tasting meals. Even Jed, I’m noticing as I peek past my computer screen, has things he’d like to accomplish. Although perhaps not at this very minute.
So as creatures that want to accomplish great things, every once in a while we get an idea and we actually believe that we can make that idea happen. We get all excited and feel an overwhelming sense of I CAN DO THIS! We imagine the end results with stars in our eyes.
Then what happens? Well, we get busy or tired or both and the little voice that was screaming “I can do this” suddenly gets quiet and all we’re left with is that sense of feeling overwhelmed except that the excitement has now turned into stress.
How do we avoid this? How do we actually follow through with our big ideas to make a difference in the world BEFORE we get sandwiched between inspiration and distraction? There’s really only one answer to that question. Two paths we can take; one answer. The following infographic demonstrates what happens when you don’t act on your ideas. It also demonstrates what happens when you do act on your ideas.
What’s your next big idea?
