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.
