If you have a stack of ideas, you have to be ruthless about which ones you choose to pursue.
Give time for the ideas to settle. You'll find you are much less excited about some of the ideas you've written down. During the process of pursuing an idea, someone will have to be personally convicted of the idea and want to fight for it.

"You've got to be free to say any dumb thing, because a lot of times when you say something stupid, a good idea arises from it."
"Someone asked me where I get all my good ideas, explaining that it takes him a month or two to come up with one and I seem to have more than that. I asked him how many bad ideas he has every month. He paused and said, 'None.'"
You're inevitably going to have to say 'no' to some of the ideas you want to execute. Give your ideas room to breathe before you assess them.
The most successful ideas will be related to your own particular observations on your needs, or what you see is missing in the world.
Generating ideas is the process of finding new connections between old ideas.
We have to be able to connect the dots, cross-pollinate ideas from various disciplines, and combine and recombine them to create new ideas.
Create a safe place, free from criticism, because we tend to clam up if we feel like we're going to be criticized.
Rather than criticizing what you don't like, focus on getting ideas out in the open so you can build on them.
Don`t be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams.

This process bridges the gap from imagination to reality.
A side-effect of committing to one project is that you end up putting off all the rest. By the time you finally start a project, you’ve been thinking about it for a while.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
