As I write this, I have plans in my mind for a couple of new projects I’m working on with my friend David Peralty. I told my sister what we have planned and she agrees they’re good and something you don’t see every day, but wonders if I’m going to have enough time to do what I need to do. Some people knit or watch TV to relax. Me, I like to start new projects. I can’t help it. I have ideas in my head that are begging to come out.
Ideas are free. In this economy we can’t afford to invest in a lot of useless tools and applications. Instead, we have to take advantage of the tools we were born with and think about how we can best put them to use. That’s why I like to run with my ideas. Some of them are good and some are bad, but I never know until I put them into action.
Don’t give up on your ideas. Write them down, play with them. Put them away and revisit them, but hold them dear. You never know when your idea can become the next big thing.
Without ideas, you’re just doing what other people thought of.
