You Have Brilliant Ideas

You have brilliant, genius ideas!

If that’s true, why isn’t your actual (for reals) life genius-ly brilliant?

One reason that your “real time” life doesn’t match what’s in your brain bank is simply because you have too many brilliant ideas to actually act upon.

I am convinced that most people today have A.D.D. (Attention Deficit Disorder).  Distractions abound.  The thing is, many of the ideas that float distractingly through your mind are brilliant….just not timely –  in a practical action way – at this moment.

So, what’s the solution? How can you actually use more of the ideas that come to mind.  How can you “plug in” the thoughts that you really feel would help you improve your relationship with friends, family, and God.  How do you not forget the “I wonder what would happen ifs?”

The first step:

Jot the idea down in a small notepad you can carry with you.  If you do that, your brain will tell you it’s okay to go back to the task at hand.  But, if you begin practicing this simple habit (in the way that makes sense for you – like, maybe, carrying a small mp3 recorder) you will begin creating a “Brilliant Locker” of do-able actions (in their time).

The second step:

Every now and then, purposely look through the ideas snippets that you’ve jotted down or recorded.

I’ll conclude this post by saying, “You have lots of brilliant ideas!  You just need to corral and save them for use at a more appropriate time.  You may be surprised how this leads to improved relationships and life in general….cuz…you’re brilliant as God’s creation.  Really brilliant.  You just need to tend and manage your “garden.”

  • I like to use a program called Evernote. It let’s me jot or record notes on my phone and automatically syncs them with my laptop.
