Are you “lost” or confused? Are you unsure what to do, what step to take?
In a previous post, we talked about oddball ideas, keeping a notebook of them (click here to navigate to that post), letting them simmer on the back burner of your mind, and periodically reviewing them.
Now’s the time to get out that notebook and go through your ideas.
If you’ve been faithful about capturing them—I’m positive you have been!—I guarantee you that you will find the help you need there. It may not be any one idea in particular, you can probably combine bits and pieces of other ideas and come up with something new that will help you. Or, reviewing your list will start you thinking…and a totally new idea will pop into your mind that’ll be just the one you need!
However it happens, your idea list will help you get your feet back under you, show you the direction to take, and illuminate the next step.
Your ideas are your personal goldmine in them thar personal hills of your’n!
Your homework today is to go through your idea list. Give yourself a chunk of time to do this because you are going to be so excited! New thoughts and insights are going to be popping all over the place. Capture them! Jot them down! Then take action on the ones that are the next step for you!
If you haven’t started an idea notebook, your homework is to start one today—right now! It doesn’t have to be anything elaborate. All it has to be is a reliable system for capturing your ideas, thoughts, and insights, and a system that also allows for the easy access and retrieving of those ideas. That means slips of paper and cocktail napkins are out—unless you are disciplined enough to jot them down in a notebook at your first opportunity!
You can do it!
I am so proud of you!
Your Friend and Pep Pal,
PS Here’s a picture of the notebooks I use to capture all my ideas and thoughts: One for each quarter of the year!
