Sometimes I feel like I have lots of ideas but I don’t take action. Recently, I was talking to the owner of a wellness clinic about this problem and she suggested that I write down all of my ideas without necessarily committing to action. She said I may just decide to take action one day and on that day I will have lots to choose from.
Most of my ideas are overwhelmingly large such as “write an e-book” (even though I have no material) or “create a meditation club” (even though I don’t currently meditate on a regular basis). It’s also different from writing down “to dos” because these ideas are often large projects that would make up a series of “to dos”.
By writing my ideas down I found it not only gave me a sense of purpose but it also gave me a sense of freedom. I have realized that it’s almost as though my ideas can get trapped in my mind and by writing them down it not only releases me from them but also makes me feel as though I just might just get to them someday.
Do you write down your ideas? Does it give you a sense of purpose, freedom or accomplishment? How do you choose what to do next?
