What Stops Us From Executing Ideas W/ B. Jeffrey Madoff
Manage episode 334201394 series 2286714
So many people have plenty of great ideas. But only a few people actually make theirs see the light of day. Why?
Well, in today’s episode of The Transition Guy, I’m joined by professor and author of “Creative Careers: Making a Living with Your Ideas”, B. Jeffrey Madoff, to talk about executing ideas successfully, getting things done, and why not a lot of us are able to do just that.
The truth is that a lot of us have brilliant ideas, and yet so few of us see them through. Making a living out of our creative ideas is possible but very few do so. Not everyone takes action.
You might’ve, in one occasion or another, said that you’ve had an idea or a few ones way before anyone else had them. But why have you not done anything with them? What makes executing ideas so difficult that only a couple of us are actually getting things done?
As B. Jeffrey Madoff shares, he always starts his first day of class asking students, “How many of you have been…somewhere where you’ve seen things and said, ‘Oh, I had that same idea! I could’ve done that.’?” And he follows it up with, “So what’s the difference between you and them?”
The answer that eventually comes up from the students? Those people actually did it. They made it happen.
How can you do that yourself? The first step, as Jeffrey suggests, is to actualize your idea. Have a proof of concept. Put your product or your service out there. Test it and see if there are people willing to buy it.
Admittedly, executing ideas isn’t the easiest thing to do. But ideas are only as good as what actually makes it to the market. I talk more about getting things done with B. Jeffrey Madoff, so stay tuned until the end to know what it takes to execute ideas successfully.
