Ideas From Start to Finish

ideas from start to finish

Everybody has ideas. Great ideas. Unfortunately, most of these ideas never materialize. There can be many different factors as to why this doesn’t happen, but ultimately one truth remains: Ideas can be hard to finish.

In this series Ideas From Start to Finish we’ll look at the factors that stop our ideas from getting completed, as well as processes and tips that move the project along. Here’s a list of the posts in the series.

  1. Introduction
  2. It’s OK if People Don’t Understand Your Ideas
  3. Kick-Start the Idea by Planning
  4. Don’t Be Afraid to Change the Dream

I think the reason most ideas don’t materise into good money making schemes is simply because they are not fully reasearched

“Everyone has a photographic memory. Some don’t have film.” I have learnt this the hard way, now I take my notepad to write ideas, everywhere I go.

The more you can write down, the more you are free to think. Make sure your notebook is of the size where you’ll take it *everywhere* with you. i will often forget to take my phone, but almost never forget my notebook.

At first it seems weird to write stuff down. but once you start doing it, it becomes addictive. You never know when you’ll want to refer back to that suggestion for a dive bar, book, website, or product or when you’ll want to remember an intelligent quote or advice from a friend.

There are so many really good ideas out there. A great deal would be opening a platform that collects ideas. Everybody should post her/his idea and others can capture this idea and bring it to reality.

Now that you’ve set the theme and budget, it’s time to talk FOOD. Here are some quick tips to keep in mind.

1) Select foods that will be appropriate for the type of party you are having.
For example: Finger Foods for a lunch time party.
2) Make a list PRIOR to going to the store of everything you will need. STICK to your list. This will prevent you from just picking up things and changing the menu while you’re shopping.
3) If time permits, start shopping early. This will allow you time to clip coupons and check for sales.

Yes, in most cases we have ideas. But having ideas is not doing the same you are able to. Most people are affraid of doing. That’s the fact!
Wish you all the best, Brigitte

I think your’re right. In my opinion it’s great to have ideas which come to life. It’s a evolution thing…nothing else!

When it comes to realize your ideas and dreams it’s more than helpful to talk to other people about what you are thinking..yes another kind of evolution process.
