Sometimes I have to stop and wonder what is wrong with my mind. I am not crazy. Well, I might actually be and just do not know it yet. Most of the time, I just wonder what would happen if my mind cooperated with the rest of me.
I often have a kazillion ideas floating around in my head. Coming up with ideas is not a problem–at all.
The problem I am finding currently is that I have no complete thoughts. I have a lot of ideas but most of them are half-baked. They were not worked to completion.
So here I am with all these ideas and I have no idea what to make of most of them. I sit in silence instead. It is easier than trying to figure out which way my over-active migraine brain will take me next.
I need and want the ideas, but I want to actually be able to make heads or tails of them. I want to be able to sit down with a piece of paper and just simply do a brain dump of ideas. Then I want to be able to look at that paper and ponder it, dig deeper, and develop it.
Right now, I feel that when I sit down with a piece of paper full of ideas (when I do actually get a list made), I start thinking about even more ideas and I simply cannot focus on the idea on the piece of paper. Even when I can think about the idea on the paper, I find myself wandering off into some crazy tangents related to the idea but not as important as other things.
I have been told over and over again, “just write it down as it comes and it will start to make more sense.” I have tried. Oh, how I have tried. I now have a pile of ideas that just aren’t going anywhere. That is what is driving me crazy. How do people do it?
I just want to see one of the crazy ideas all the way to completion. I want to be able to act on the ideas and see them come to fruition. Is that what is stopping me from making some things a reality? Am I over thinking things?
How do you focus on a single idea without having other ideas creep in and experiencing “scope creep?”
