Ideas are great

Leave a comment

Ideas are great. Execution of Ideas is Work. I think I had a good idea today but the work involved in it will be substantial. We will see, I reached out and touched a few friends today with it and look forward to their thoughts and interest. Sometimes ideas get better when shared. Sometimes though you might have to accept change going forward together.

I love ideas, I have a lot more of them than I’m able to execute, but I give it my best shot now. Which is the way it will be for the time to come. I’m inspired for today and tomorrow. And if you’re looking forward and acting on your ideas, you are living.

But which ideas do we act on and what ones go on the back burner? What new ideas are spurred by revisiting old ones? Which are so large that they intimidate us from embarking work on them? Which ones do you work on for a great while and then say to yourself one day “it seemed like a good idea at the time.”

All of us have ideas. A lot of those ideas that get crushed, make it harder and harder to have new ones. The ability to have an idea, act on it, share it, and have others refine and make it better. The experience of following the process through by working every step.

I have ideas I haven’t entirely followed through on but some things I’ve been doing along the way might lead to making some ideas a reality.

Mother Nature was providing some interesting twist and turns today. At least the day ended with a little sunshine.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I’m blessed to have children that do random acts of kindness for their parents often.
  • OK, who turned off the HEAT? I want names. Temps in the 50’s for a high? In MAY.
  • The New Yorker at Beef Brothers is a very good sandwich.
  • Dogs are so loyal. Humans should take some lessons from them.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
