Can you relate?
An idea comes in.
The imagination starts to flow. So exciting.
You pick up your phone and start scrolling for extra inspiration.
The more you look, the more possibilities you find.
Oh, there’s this and this, and what if I did this?
Enter inspiration overload.
Leaving you stuck in a possibilities thought-loop.
I’ve been a bit stuck myself. The words haven’t been flowing.
I’m not short on ideas. In fact, I have a long list of subjects in my notes app.
But I just haven’t been able to start.
Thought-loops going round and round in my head.
This is me, breaking the loop.
This is me, getting the words out of my head and onto the page.
How ’bout you?
Are you stuck in a creative possibilities thought-loop?
Thinking/researching/scrolling more than making or doing?
Do-ers take an idea/inspiration and go with it.
They take the first step, then the next.
They don’t wait for perfect. They don’t over-plan. They do, adjust, tweak, and repeat.
Growing and becoming while DO-ing.
They scroll. They look for inspiration, watch tutorials. They research gear. They buy gear.
They make lists.
They imagine all the possibilities.
All the thinking often fools the thinker into believing they’re doing.
I’m not judging …. I can overthink too.
The good news. We can shift from thinking to doing simply by taking the first step, then the next. The only way forward is to start.
All the gear, all the props, all the words, all the things will NEVER ever be perfectly aligned.
What have you been thinking about for too long?
What can you DO today to move forward and toward?
If not now… when?
