The Problem with your Big Idea

Is that it is not actionable

All of us have great ideas. Some of the ideas are interesting, but to become relevant the idea has to be actionable. It has to create action. Without action the idea stays where it came from.


You are not getting valuable feedback

It happens that we present our ideas as a statements. “I have an idea and here it is.” Ideas should develop into even greater ideas through feedback from other people.

The Cure

The next time you have the big idea:

  • Formulate it so that a person can take concrete action.
  • Stretch our for feedback. What more could you learn? Who else might be interested in it?

Keeping action and feedback in mind will generate an actionable feedback-looping attitude!
