#Reverb10 Prompt: Action. When it comes to aspirations, its not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen. What’s your next step? By Scott Belsky, author of Making Ideas Happen
Can I start by saying how excited I was to find out that Scott Belsky’s book exists? I really need some help in this area. I mean I probably put more ideas into action than many people do, but I have trouble getting started sometimes and I’d love to have a way to prioritize and pick which ideas to do when.
Okay, so imagine I have an idea. My first step is to write it down, and usually to ramble and or brainstorm about it for a while. Then I usually bounce it off the person I know who will see its spaciousness (different ideas need different people), and we hash it out a while. Then, depending on the size of the idea/project, I either start making lists and a timeline or, if it is soonish and smallish, I round people up get things moving.
I want to put more of my ideas into action though, and I want to build upon those ideas and grow more, fresh ideas and just go mad with idea growing.
Again with the structure and consistency though. I need it.
