Have you ever been awakened with a good idea. Comedian Jerry Seinfeld says his best jokes pop into his head at night, he wakes up and writes it down and goes back to sleep. Of course the next time he is on stage, that joke gets put to use. He executes! I can imagine him sitting in a room with his writers and trying it out and even refining it.
Maybe this happens to you. You wake up with good ideas too. The question is does that idea lead to execution? Are you sitting with people who qualify to take that idea and bring it to productivity? You can bet Mr. Seinfeld has a team of tested, qualified writers, not someone at the table simply because they like or respect him.
Two major keys to execution of these good ideas are:
- Quickly developing a plan that takes the idea to a best practice
- Having support for the execution by qualified people
If we do not have in place a mechanism inside of ourselves or our organizations and if we are not surrounded by people who can make things happen, those good ideas – even in the middle of the night – will become mediocre projects at best or simply die in the intestinal track of the un-worked mind and untapped potential.
So write them down, smile, get excited – just be sure they are given the chance to change the world!
