This Tool Ain’t Getting Any Sharper

I have serious management potential. I believe I care enough to actually affect change.

Yep, Sharp as a marble.

A few bricks shy of a load.

Not the brightest spoon in the drawer nor sharpest tool in the shed.

I have spent a life time pursuing my dreams. Of course there have been interruptions and distractions: Love, financial attainment, work commitments, family, you know. A long life’s path are many decisions, good and bad.

I have made a daily habit of searching for new ideas. This been an extremely interesting process. First rule: there is no such thing as a good or bad idea. It’s just an idea. The most important thing is to get the idea out.

I have read that turning over ideas and writing them down actually increases brain strength; approach the brain as a muscle that needs to be exercised. Idea crunches? I don’t know.

Like I said, there are no bad ideas, they are just ideas. I started by just throwing cocepts out there. Example: Go back to school, great thought, right? But is it practicable? For me, no; for some one else, maybe. Ideas are just ideas – be a garbage man, start a deli, walk pets, be a bicycle mechanic, drive an ice cream truck, buy a dry cleaner, work as a grocery clerk…

Here’s the kicker…for me, only one in a thousand ideas is even worth acting upon. So, ten ideas a day times 365 days = 3,650 ideas. If I am lucky, that’s 3 ideas a year that are worthy of follow up. Actually, I think my average is lower.

For an idea to be worth acting upon, it needs to meet criterion, like, is it feasible? Also, is it simple? Does the idea actually resonate with my inner core values? It has to be something that is in line with my passions and goals; if it’s not, I’m not going to be very interested in follow through. Consistency and persistency is the concept I embrace in everything.

I’m not yet a dazzling financial success, but I have embraced the process of growth. I’m blessed in that I have my health and a good, solid foundation in many areas of my life. Everyday I fire my endorphins with different areas of achievement, constantly improving some small area of my life, which will show exponentially at the end of a years practice.

Is there any way we can help you?
