Have you ever thought of a great idea (in your opinion, at least…and let’s face it, sometimes that’s ALL that matters) only to hear, “That already exists.”
That happened to me once. I thought I invented the number eight.
This was before the Internet and before I had a firm grasp on numbers and their significance. I was young, like age 2ish or MAYBE 4ish…I dunno it’s been a while.
But when you come up with an idea, such as a new product, service, or a different/happier YOU, only to find out “it’s been done before“, do you:
- Give up and let your dream die, or
- Respond with, “Oh REALLY? GREAT! I will check them out and then do it better than they ever could!”
If you chose #2 then you need a course of action. OK…what is that?
That’s on you to figure out. I don’t know what your dream is. Only you do.
My course of action? You’re reading it. I get my blog on, dawg! That’s how I learn The Game and sharpen my grind because I need my swag sharp when it’s my time to ball.
I will conclude this blog post with an important bolded sentence.
Ideas are only as useful as the action created.
