Idea development is a lot like backpacking deep into the mountains. When you start out, you can see the uphill climb in front of you, but you are excited, passionate and full of energy. You start your journey and it doesn’t seem so bad. You make a lot of progress then, suddenly, your energy fades and you are struggling.
If you are anything like me, you are always thinking of something new. A new project I want to start, a new skill I want to learn, a new place I want to go. When a new idea comes, I instinctively want to plan out every detail. I’ll even stop projects I’m working on to think through new ideas. Ideas have a way of taking over my life.
