I LOVE coming up with ideas and what-if scenarios! It actually brings me great joy to think big and creatively. However sometimes that can backfire – especially around dinner time for me.
You see, I enjoy cooking and thinking about cooking… and thinking about combinations of food or techniques…you get the idea. In fact, I can think about what I am going to cook until I am too hungry to actually cook and then must resort to fruit and nut butter for dinner.
My point? Creativity and big picture thinking are fantastic until it prevents you from your initial goal to take action.
For those of us who are creatives, it’s about finding creativity in the action that is key. What idea in your life is waiting for you to take action?
Or maybe it’s the opposite for you – are you a doer before the big picture is in focus?
