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