The brain is a beautiful thing. It comes up with all types of ideas, big and small, brilliant, and innovative. Sometimes the ideas we think of surface into our reality when we make an effort to achieve it. Other times it simply ends in the mind. For entrepreneurs, it’s pretty easy to get lost in the thinking and forget about it before we even start the doing.
The transformation of a thought into action doesn’t just help make your dreams come true. It also helps train the brain to do it again and again. This is called a feedback loop that pushes us to further other creative ideas. If you’re struggling with turning your ideas into action, here’s a process you can follow to train your brain to think otherwise and make things happen!

1. Understand What You Want: One of the initial ways to focus your creative energies is to understand what the problem is and how you’re going to go about fixing it.

2. Set Up A Plan: Now it’s time to strategize. Figure out the steps you need to take in order to achieve the goal you set forth. Get a little crazy with it and have fun. This is a creative process. Think of which paths aren’t obvious. It’s okay to have some missing pieces, just consider what would happen if you filled it in with possible outcomes. You’ll adjust as needed later on.

3. Build a Model: It’s time to put your ideas into a little bit of action. This isn’t the final outcome and it doesn’t have to be good either. Everything is worth the try. Do your best to get through this step without help. Since it’s your idea, you need proof that it’s possible before investing too much time or money into it. Again, don’t drive for perfection here, just make sure your model shows where you’re going.

4. Gain More Perspective: Allow other people to take a look at your model. This could be your inner circle, target audience, or family members. Let them test and analyze your model. Ask for honest feedback. You’ll often discover potential setbacks during this process that will allow you to make necessary adjustments.

Achieve Your Goal Now that you’ve refined your drafts and models, it’s time to put your ideas out there into the world. Come up with a plan of how you’re going to release it. Think of this part as your marketing plan. How will you build anticipation? What channels will you do this through (social media, Google ads, newsletters)? 

Solidify your rollout strategy and then execute it. Getting your creative ideas out into the world is proof of your creativity. Set your ideas free and see how they change as more people get involved, whether they be customers, team members, or speculators. Once you see the success of this, you’re likely to do more of it.

Believe in yourself and just take the risk. The reward waiting on the other side is greater than you can imagine.
