  1. SO true! And don’t you love analyfe? I just found that blog and am addicted. I have had some amazing ideas over the years and I have talked myself out of them or let someone else talk me out of them. I am done with that. I think the formula is idea + confidence in yourself and your idea + action = RESULTS! Thanks for a thoughtful post!

    • Yes, great blog! She’s got great insight with mature thoughts for such a young writer.
      Where and when one’s best ideas come from is still a fascination for me–I’m not sure there is a pattern to my inspiration:)

      • I would say that one of the keys elements to turning ideas into success is tenacity. Ideas may escape us, but the bigger problem is starting an idea and then dropping it…I personally have a dozen projects into which I’ve invested hundreds of hours and then I just stopped because I wasn’t sure what to do next. I think the best advice is to keep moving, even if you’re not entirely confident, because you’ll learn as you go.

        Thank you both for your kind words! The blog is primarily a way for me to organize, understand, and document my personal ideas, but it brings me such joy knowing that others can connect to and benefit from some of my thoughts. 🙂

  2. Erin, I’m like you with a lot of irons in the fire. I don’t like to feel overwhelmed, but it’s exciting to pursue ideas and projects I care deeply about, which lends itself to feeling less like work. Keep up the great posts!
