The “DOING” is the hardest part – 3 Ways to Help You DO More
Everyone has ideas...everyone – some good, some bad, some just plain genius. But the hard part about any great idea is actually doing it – the implementation, the execution. The act of putting together a plan, forming a team and then jumping off the cliff and doing something.
I am one of those people that can brainstorm until the cows come home…I love generating ideas. Love, love it. I think that is one of the fun parts of innovation is imagining the possibilities. What takes talent (and discipline) is taking an idea from concept to completion. That’s the “Doing”…and “Doing” is the hardest part.”
Here are 3 ways to help you DO more and ignite innovation:
- Set a time limit on the brainstorming – Don’t spin on the ideas!
- Create a sense of urgency – real or fake. Budget that needs to be spent, or a scheduled customer meeting
- Empower your team. Give all around you the confidence to step out and deliver. Fear is usually the big hurdle. If you inject confidence, it will get done.
Stop dreaming and start doing. The next big thing will never be, if you don’t just do it.
