Creative Sparks are Flying!

This week is about ideas –the 5-5-5 group started exactly as that – an idea – as I was lamenting the fact that I had a desire to get up early and accomplish more – that every time I read about a great leader – and their discipline about holding this habit of getting up at 5 AM – Zig Ziglar started me off, then others and the most powerful was Mary Kay Ash, who even with three small children would arise at 5 AM and get two hours of strong focused work in before the rest of the house got up –she built an amazing business and never gave up the 5 AM habit and her top sales people now continue the 5 AM club to stay at the top of their game, I was convinced it needed to be a habit of mine too.

Without the research, the seeking, the 5-5-5 team idea wouldn’t have come to me and wouldn’t be working so well for the ones on the call.

So ideas – the beginnings – the middles – the creative sparks that can happen any time and anywhere are vital – we will be hearing the thoughts of others on ideas this week however the call for me is this: To act on my ideas – I do not find I am short of ideas – however the action on them is not as strong as I’d like – getting up early is now a habit, however, am I using my time to the best of my ability and if not what ideas do I have or do others have to alter this?  It’s going to be an exciting week!

George Gardner said this about ideas – “Thought is, perhaps, the forerunner and even the mother of ideas, and ideas are the most powerful and the most useful things in the world.” Ideas!

Ernest Dimnet said this, “Ideas are the roots of creation.” Ideas!

Something interesting from a book called How to Get Ideas written by Jack Forster – here is one definition: “An idea is nothing more nor less than a new combination of old elements.” Think about that for a moment – what can you take from your life that is working now and rethink into a new combination? Limitless possibilities!
