I was asked when thinking about a new project – “can you make sure its something you’ll follow through with before you agree to proceed?” My response – “do you know me at all?” now my wonderful significant other does know me but I had not really thought about how I proceed with my thoughts till this moment.
I have thousands of ideas and concepts go through my mind on a weekly basis. Hundreds peak my interest and a few entice me to move on them. What I see in my head, all have hurtles infront of them. Materials, availability, cost, environment impact, practicality and on and on. They vary depending on the idea. What really cuts the hurtles down is trying! For me thats just how I move forward. I move on so many ideas and lots of them do fall short. Even after an extensive amount of resources and time were put forward. Sometimes when I move away from something I’ve invested myself into, I do get a little sad but the reality is I try. I try a lot. the ones that work, make the rest worth while. Mainly, no venture comes without a new procedure, information, awareness or methods useful for something else currently under go or a future venture.
So – “do you know me at all?” I “really” can have an idea of the projects success but only to a certain degree… and for me, I just have to jump and see. The rest of you can calculate your projects all you like. In the mean time I’m gaining ground. May not know for what or when but gaining ground non the less.
