Trust Your Crazy Ideas  is the current sign on my desk.

I have a lot of ideas as do most of the people I mentor/coach. Some of them are unlikely to be executed but some are ground-breaking (e.g, my best-seller, “How To Be Organized In Spite Of Yourself”) and many of them are ahead of their time. I like being in front of the curve but it can also be frustrating when the timing isn’t right.

I was talking with Jamie this morning and we were discussing how to deal with an overflow of creativity. Jamie’s a brilliant conceptualizer but she still has to deal with the fact that there are only 24 hours in a day. Plus, she doesn’t want to be going full-tilt every minute. What to do, since she keeps generating so much great stuff?

Answer: Put those ideas in an Idea Box. I used the same concept when I used to tell my organizing clients to go through their files every 6 months or so. There are likely some gems hidden in there that never got to see the light and when you view them later, the circumstances may be perfect for digging them out.

So save those crazy ideas and jot a note in your calendar to review them at regular intervals. You never know what fabulous concept might be waiting in there that the world is now ready to receive.

    I love this. I did this. I had no idea where I thought I was going, but it felt like I was climbing a mountain.
