Do you have so many ideas, projects, and goals that you don't know where to start? Do you feel bad because you are so indecisive? Do you start many projects, but finish very few?
Have you ever wondered why you don't finish the projects that you start? I believe that this happens because creative people possess the ability to do many, many things and guess what - they do. Which means that they tend to start project #1 and before it's complete they have already started projects #2 and #3.
The purpose of this post is not to condemn you or to tell you that you must finish one project before you start another one, but to recommend that you use your creative energy in a more focused and powerful manner by working on your creative projects first.
You must use your best energy on projects that require you to be the most creative.
You are at your best when you work on your creative ideas because you already have unlimited creative power which is amplified when combined with your natural energy.
Here's how you do it:
Identify the project that you are most passionate about and that calls for you to be at your creative best.
Set aside an hour or more to work on this project.
Give yourself permission to work exclusively on this project - single-minded focus ensures success.
The last step is to enjoy being immersed in this creative endeavor.

I just completed a series of articles based upon Napoleon Hill's book, Think and Grow Rich. If you have ever read the book, you know that Mr. Hill speaks about a secret that is mentioned over one hundred times in the book.
I don't know about you, but I have read that book over twenty times and I have never identified what the "secret" is. So, I decided to re-read the book and find out what this secret is all about.
I decided to analyze the story of Edwin C. Barnes and his quest to become a partner with the great inventor, Thomas Edison.
You can read the result of my analysis by reading the articles listed below:
The Secret of Think and Grow Rich - Part I
The Secret of Think and Grow Rich - Part II
The Secret of Think and Grow Rich - Part III

Do you think that they were born with the ability to create ideas?
Do you also think that you are not creative or that you do not have the ability to create valuable ideas?
I believe that we all have the ability to create anything that we desire. If you can imagine a goal, idea, or dream - you have the ability to bring that image to life.
All it takes is energy, effort, and persistence - it may not be easy but it is definitely possible.
You can increase your odds of becoming successful at creating and developing great ideas by studying the methods, tactics, and actions of people who have mastered the ideation process.
I have created a new website called Student of Ideas for people who want to become idea generators by becoming students of ideas.
My goal is to build a community of idea generators, so please visit and sign up for the Idea Tips newsletter.

In the book he talks about a technique called the Rule of 5. The purpose of this technique is to help you build momentum by ensuring that you do at least 5 things everyday, no matter how small, to move you closer to accomplishing your major goal.
Consider this, if you apply this technique to writing a book - you would be able to complete a 150 page book in approx. 1 month by writing at least 5 pages everyday.
Think about how much you could accomplish if you did 5 things everyday to accomplish your goals - you would be UNSTOPPABLE!!
