Creative Mondays: Start Today, Never Let your Idea Die in your Head!
I felt cornered when I got an e-mail clearly stating that this space is mine to fill for this week….this is quite a challenge as I have been very scared to put pen to paper for some years now, call it laziness or whatever, I just call it “penphobia” (yeah, go figure!!!).
Since you are stuck with this “penphobic” writer this week, I guess its best we get started, I only have one chance to make a first impression so we better get started.
Ever regretted anything at any point in your life? Well I have, severally infact and you will agree with me that the worst regret anyone can feel is not of what is done wrongly but usually what isn’t attempted. I’ll explain.
I once had cravings for lovely pop-corn while at work and thought it would be a great idea to start a pop-corn gourmet business around corporate organisations where staff can just take a stroll down and purchase or call in for it to be delivered to them, well, that was where it ended for me, a thought.
I never followed up on that thought and just let it slip only to be reminded of that same idea when I saw a packaged pop-corn just as I thought. It was just like someone picked out the idea from my head and worked on it. Today, It has become a regular snack around and it took a lot for me to stop feeling bad for not acting on it the moment I thought of it.
