Is It the Idea, or the Idea of the Idea You Love?

There is a difference between being rooted in an idea and stuck in an idea.

Rooted versus stuck

Let’s say you have an idea for rearranging and cleaning your office. You believe that this idea will lead to greater productivity on your part.

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.”

This is an example of being rooted in an idea versus stuck in an idea. Other examples may include attempting to create a cookie recipe and trying again, and again, and again to make the idea work but not succeeding; starting a story but never finishing it due to constant, frequent editing; half-way implementing any given idea over and over, but never reaching a conclusion.

Idea generation sans movement and implementation

For example, let’s say you have this amazing idea for something you think could change the world. You explore the idea and you make various attempts to figure out how to implement it.

Become mindful of the idea

Mindfulness is awareness specifically of yourself. When you become aware of your thoughts, feelings, and actions it goes beyond just knowing your headspace. It can also show you your overall mindset and your heart’s desires.

Ideas are always a good idea

In conclusion, having new ideas is awesome. Don’t be afraid of new ideas. That’s how you innovate, alter, repair, and change the world. New ideas provide things like the internet, airplanes, mobile phones, and similar evolving technologies.
