A singer songwriter and his ideas are normally a good pair.
But what happens when you get too many ideas? And, what do you think? Can you come up with too many ideas? I’ve read lots of information from lots of helpful people on how to organize, “brain dump“, to-do lists, etc. etc. etc. There have been whole websites dedicated to this. Software developers have produced some wonderful ways to digitally organize thoughts and tasks.
Still…none of these really cool tools address what to do with too many ideas.
And, yes…I believe a creative person of any kind, not just a dorky singer songwriter like me, can come up with too many ideas. There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t come up with some “awesome” idea for a song, or an internet venture, or even a piece of furniture I’d like to build. There just isn’t enough time in the day to pursue all my ideas. So…I delegate my brain sections to their respective tasks and endeavor to move forward.
Anyone else have this “problem”? If so, what do you do about it?
I remember reading about a Louisiana politician (who I’m purposefully keeping nameless) who was assassinated. Reportedly his last words were “Please God, don’t let me die. I have so much to do.” I often think about what could go on my tombstone (should that day ever arrive), and I’ve come up with “Wow…that was fast!“
