Moving Big Rocks: 5 Kick-Ass Tips For Conquering 'The Big Idea'

Big Ideas, The Red Rabbit Studio

I'd like to talk about how to move big rocks. First of all, they have a lot of deterrents for moving them; They can weigh thousands of tons, seemingly immovable, while calmly mocking our inability to move it. Completing a big idea that acts as a boulder can cause most people to want to give up.

When it comes to taking on big ideas, the real issue faced by people is their perceived gravity of the idea. The capacity to create and understand the meaning of ideas is considered to be an essential and defining feature of human beings. It seems that everyone has ideas and wants to share them with the world.

Below, are 5 kick-ass tips for changing your perception so you can conquer the big tasks and find greater success in your goals.

1. Divide and Conquer.

There is no doubt you have have heard this before but I tell you with certainty, that you must break your idea down into smaller, manageable milestones.

Look as objectively as you can at the breadth of your idea. Is there a way you can break it down into smaller, more manageable parts? Are there any common elements that can be done easier if certain other elements are completed first?

By finding a way to segment your big idea you can get a clearer picture of how close to be completed it is and what areas need attention. Segmenting can also give you insight into new ways to understand the process and benefit from idea development.

2. Knowledge is Power.

Being aware of all the individual parts allows you see the various actions needed to complete them. This gives you a wide array of knowledge about
logistics, people skills, and methods of motivation for getting other people to help you.

Always remember to apply new knowledge and avoid getting bogged down with process. As you acquire new knowledge make efforts to apply it to your project, in real time.

3. Get Off Your Ass.

This is one of the most important aspects of conquering your big ideas. Always remember that ideas don't make themselves real, they require you to put your energy, resources and will into them. You can't do this is you're lazy, so you have to get off your ass and make the moves need to progress the segments you've made.

(It's True)

4. Maintain A Wide View, But Don't Miss The Narrow One.

Big ideas are hard to see up close, so you must stand back and keep the whole thing in your sights. With an eye on the future and an understanding of your long term goals, it will be easier to focus on the smaller milestones you've set out.

5. Seek Help From Those With Vested Interest.

It's time to get real here. You can't do everything yourself no matter how good you are at any particular thing. It's time to accept that and look out into the world to find people who will love your idea and want to help make it grow. The advantages are immediately clear, you will have more time and energy for other aspects of your big idea. Many small businesses are set up to help people with their ideas. Use that idea and tap into people for their own interest, either by paying for services or exchanging them.
