Got an idea? Make it happen

by on
in Workplace Communication

“Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration,” Thomas Edison once said.

Making ideas happen is usually more difficult and time-consuming than announcing it in the first place.

Jack Dorsey, creator and co-founder of Twitter, offers these tips for making ideas happen:

Get your ideas out of your head and down on paper. As you put pen to paper, you’re already testing and refining your idea.

Don’t forget the element of “good timing.” Dorsey tried to launch a Twitter precursor when the timing wasn’t right, and it failed. But he kept the idea around and relaunched it when the time finally was right.

Constantly iterate. Your idea isn’t perfect? Adjust as you go. Dorsey has made improvements to Twitter as users suggested them.

Know when to stop writing or talking, and make your idea happen—or when to put it on the shelf until the timing is right.
