We all have great thoughts and wonderful ideas. However, our thoughts and ideas are no good to us or anyone else unless they are shared.
Words are the vehicle that we use to share these thoughts and ideas. We use words to paint pictures of our thoughts and ideas to share with others.
What comes to your mind when I say the word “dog”? Do you see Ralphie, your childhood pet or do you see the neighbors little black the chihuahua that seems to never stop barking?
Your words help us to image (imagine) your thoughts and ideas. This is why it is important to capture the vision (your thoughts & ideas), write it and make it simple on paper. This will require that you sit down, get quiet and turn off all distractions.
Now take that written vision of the company, building, ministry, book or invention and begin building it out. Share it with others. Effective communication is really important at this point. You must consistently communicate and clarify your vision to and with your team until they see the vision like you see it.
There is a beautiful building in you, a great symphony or best-selling book for which the world is waiting. Do it today. Write that vision. Make it simple and give us a piece of your mind.
