Ideas Are A Dime A Dozen

by Martha Giffen

Anybody else have a folder full of great ideas?  Maybe not in the physical, like mine, but stored in your brain?  You know, those wonderful thoughts that begin with the words “what if?”

One of my favorite places to let ideas take root is in phone conversations with other entrepreneurs.  We usually begin by talking about our projects or some biz endeavor and as the conversation rolls along, new ideas begin to swirl.

We bat them around, making them bigger, momentum takes over and all of a sudden, by the time I hang up, I’ve got a fabulous new idea for a product, a project, or new biz strategy.

OK, great.  Now what?

The excitement begins with the new idea and the momentum starts with the energy of the other person.  However, unless I take action (and I do mean pretty immediate action here!), nothing really is accomplished.

It just becomes another great idea.  Flat.  Sitting all by itself in the world of coulda, woulda, shoulda.

You see, ideas are swirling around you constantly.  They come from other people, from something you hear on mass media, from an interesting story you read online, ANYWHERE.


There’s never a shortage.  If you think about it long enough, you will know it to be true.

The shortage is in the action.  The willingness to step up and do something!

Make it happen.

Start paying attention to the ideas that excite you.  The ideas that you know you can run with. Do not stop.  Do not pass go.  Do NOT hesitate.  (for that’s where the breakdown is and that’s where the non-successful people live)

Start the action immediatly.  That’s what it’s all about.

Not the ideas.

They are a dime a dozen.

The action?

It’s worth pure gold.

Now, go get busy!
