Ideas fly

Ever heard that? Ideas fly.

I’m not sure how that’s possible but here’s something I think might be true.

When you get an idea, the earlier you do something about it, the more chances you have at pulling it off. I learned this from a billionaire.

It doesn’t mean you can’t execute your idea anytime but the closer the time from conception to action (no matter how small the action is), the more likely you are to see it through.

When you get an idea, write it down, tell someone, buy a domain, ask a prospective partner, make a call, draw up a schedule that lets you take a micro-step daily till you pull it off no matter how big your idea is.

You need one step to inspire the next, so take a step before the idea flies…

…just in case they do.
