You know the feeling.
You’re sitting in traffic watching your life go by while studying the bumper of the car in front of you. You start daydreaming.
You wonder why flying cars don’t exist yet. You wonder why we still haven’t figured out the answer to highway congestion, and then, as you watch a mom with a van full of kids flip off a teenager who cut her off….you’ve got it!
You’ve got a great idea. THE idea. You're going to solve the traffic problem and make every commuter see you as the person who changed their life.
They’ll print a picture of you and hang it by their desk so they can give a wholehearted shout-out, one-sided fist bump, and an emotional “Thank you!” every time they see it.
They’ll praise you at cocktail parties and nominate you for awards. You, my friend, will be their hero.
Except, none of this happens because as soon as you get home, you decide the idea sucks and you go back to wasting time in traffic because it could never work.
It’s too big. It’s too crazy. No one will like it.
You go back to finding audiobooks that will make traffic a little easier and forget your idea ever existed.
What you just experienced is a case of Idea Killeritis.
It happens to all of us.
It’s that voice that says “It’ll never work.” Or, better yet, “Who the hell do you think you are?”
If you’re an idea person, you know this voice all too well.
But what if you could control the voice that stops you from taking action?
What if you could be the person who figures out the answer to some of the world’s biggest problems?
Or even some of the smallest problems that people would still be really psyched about?
Without overcoming Idea Killeritis, that won’t be you.
Luckily, I have a solution for you.
I invite you to a free webinar I’m hosting with Sa.am this Wednesday, August 27th from 12-1pm EST.
I’ll be sharing a few of the techniques I use to overcome my fear of running with ideas (I also suffer from Idea Killeritis, but I have the antidote!).
Once I share my secrets, I’ll then open up the call for Q&A so we can have a solid chat about this craziness and get you some solutions.
If you can’t make it, don’t worry. Go ahead and register below and we’ll send you the recording so you can listen anytime.
In the meantime, here are a few ways to get started:
- Get on Twitter and share your own idea killers by using #2014ideakillers
- Avoid idea killers right now by checking out my article on Virgin.com
Hope to see you Wednesday!
