Ideas Are Nothing Without Commitments

Kyle Reed // @kylereed

I am full of ideas.
Probably to many ideas.
And if I am not careful I get more caught up in coming up with ideas verses executing ideas.
I am going to go out on a limb and say you might be the same way.

I talked more about how I come up with ideas here

Here is something I have been trying lately…make commitments. 

If you want to design custom furniture, tell someone you will design them a custom dresser by the end of the month.
If you want to design logos, offer to design a logo for a friend by the end of the week.
If you want to write a book, tweet that you have a book releasing this Fall.
If you want to start an antique booth, put down a 3 month deposit on a space.

Because ideas do not become something until we make a commitment to them. And if I know anything about ideas they are full of excitement with a backlash of fear. Don’t let either of those things kill your ideas, let commitments be the thing that drives you forward to execute.

    Ideas are great but commitments are costly. We have to sacrifice something to commit. Good word Kyle.
