How to turn ideas into plans

Hey guys I know it’s been a little while a lot has been going on. Fall is here and we’re in the home stretch of 2018. If you’re like me, you still have ideas you would like to execute. But let’s take a minute to think how do I get these ideas off my vision board and turned into plans? I wanted to share with you some tips that have worked for me

Write out what the idea will look like when it is completed and ready for the world

Ideas need structure, write it out, draw it, sketch, draft whatever you have to do to make it really in your hands. This will give you clarity to begin the plan execution process. People often like to share their amazing dreams, but when they’re finished describing and some says “that’s great how can I help?” and you have nothing tangible to share as to how they can help possibly make your vision a reality.

Start with the end goal in mind

Always having the image of the end of your idea as your frame of reference to evaluate everything else. It’s about starting things with a clear idea of your destination, so that the steps you take are always in the right direction. If you have to be busy, at least you should be doing what’s important to you.

Treat your idea like you have an unlimited budget to make it happen.

Do not restrict yourself based on your current reality. Your idea will only be as big as what you plan for it to be. Be bold when thinking out how you will make your idea come to life. Reach out to that artist for a collab, pitch your vision to executives in Silicon Valley. You will never know if you don’t take the first step.

Work on only results driven task everyday.

Every Sunday I make a list of ten items that must be complete that relate to my idea. It can be something as simple as ordering the tripod to start your livestream channel or spending 3 hours a day working on new content. Whatever it is make it something that you can quantify and check off at the end of the week. I usually list 4 easy items 6 items that may require more time. The more you get in the habit of writing out what you will hold yourself accountable for the more you’ll accomplish.
