Girl! If you don't stop playing: 3 Reasons why you MUST launch your idea

Double Dutch.

A game of time and precision.  Your coordination must flow together for the ultimate jumping experience.  Unfortunately, I feel bad for whoever turns the ropes for me, because after five minutes I guarantee that they will hate me.  I watch carefully for the perfect moment to jump in.  As soon as I move towards the ropes, I abruptly pull back. 

Nah, it wasn’t time.

I want to be like the professionals and not mess up once I get in. It has to be flawless! This causes me to sit and watch the ropes instead of getting in on the action. I’m just waiting for the perfect time.  But the time never comes.

The perfect time.

The moment when you have every penny that you will ever need, a 35-year step by step plan, and the support of President Barack Obama to launch your idea.  The idea that you can’t stop talking about and the topic of every commercial break of Insecure.  When you see others on Instagram promoting the same idea you think to yourself “I am WAY better, they don’t have nothing on me!”  The blog launch, YouTube channel, podcast, boutique, or new service.  Yeah THAT idea.  Instead of moving forward, you continue to wait for the perfect time to jump in.  But your idea can’t wait much longer, here’s why.

The Essential Guide To Get Started On Your Idea

It's Monday morning.  Which means you are dreading your department's weekly meeting. You are two seconds from falling asleep when a thought hits you.  "This weekend was boring.  I wish there was a place I could go and just chill with like minded people.  Hmmm, maybe I should throw a monthly kickback for people who don't like going to the club but still want something to do..."

The idea hits you and after that moment you can not stop thinking about it.  However there is a problem.  You have never threw an event, and have no idea how to develop one.  Does this sound familiar? No, not the fact that your weekends are dry.  But you have an idea but no clue where to start! 

After you have generated an idea here are three steps to get you started on your journey.

Step 1: Write it down

Our brains are a powerful tool.  It controls our bodies, determines our behaviors, release hormones which allows you to grow, and processes our memories (who knew you could learn so much watching Grey’s Anatomy). It makes sense for us to believe that if we think it, that we will NEVER forget.  THE LIES! Just ask someone who just put their keys down and are unable to find them now. 

If you write it down you won’t miss a beat.  It is easy to miss details that you developed days later when you attempt to recall them from your memory.  When your idea comes to mind, write it down so you don’t find yourself in the “what was that again” moment of regret.
