You Need to Be Able to Communicate Your Ideas

"You can have brilliant ideas, but if you cannot get them 
across, your ideas will not get you anywhere."

~Lee Iaccoco

The ability to communicate your ideas to others is important.  Not because you need others to approve of your ideas, but because when you share your ideas you clarify your thinking and those ideas become better, more productive, more achievable.  There is a synergy that happens when ideas are shared that sometimes makes the resulting ideas even more brilliant.  You need to take the time to formulate your ideas in a way that can be communicated when you are ready to move them forward.  While you may need some time to be ready to share your ideas, time to think them through, time to articulate them into an understandable form, in the end you need to be able to share them.  Think where we might be if Einstein had not shared his ideas...

This week: Think about the ideas that have been floating around in your head for awhile.  Have you communicated them to anyone?  If not, why not?  What would need to happen for you to be ready to share them?  This week, take one small step to get ready to share your idea.  It might be to spend some time thinking about what you would tell or who you would tell.  It might be actually talking with someone about it.  It might be answering your own questions about your idea:  why? what?  how?  what if?  Take some action to move your idea forward this week.  Then notice how that feels.

Always gently pushing me out of the muck- thanks so much for reminding me that baby steps are a good thing and that I can't climb Mt. Everest until I conquer the smaller mountains.

Linda, I am almost through reading a great book that I bet you would enjoy ... at least based on this great post. It is a new book by Peter Guber, "Tell to Win." It is about Storytelling in business. Being in the center of the universe for Storytelling, I've read a lot of books on the subject; this is the best so far.

Thanks for your post,

I like the step of making an idea real by telling just one person. It "anchors" the energy and helps attract right action. Great post, Linda!

Indeed how important communications is Linda. Thank you for the reminder to move ideas from our heads outward!

Great post Linda. I've been working to more clearly articulate what I really offer people. And, I totally agree with Sue, just doing this anchors the energy somehow.

Great post - I am all about communication so I really related to this. In particular I believe all things in order to make them manifest must go through the process of idealise, visualise, verbalise then they materialise.
And thanks to Jeff for the tip on the book on storytelling by Peter Guber, called "Tell to Win." - I have just ordered it on Amazon!
