Having more ideas than you know what to do with is a natural part of being creative.
You're a creative genius and your mind doesn't stop. That's good.
But you can't let your abundance of ideas overwhelm you. I know it's easy to be kind of frozen now knowing what to do next, but all movement is good, so you need to get yourself out of that frozen place as quickly as possible.
(I can absolutely help you with that in Dream Book - within the first month alone you'll be seeing your projects, dreams and your possibilities much differently)
This place where you're trying to pick which idea to go with is RIPE with opportunities for your inner critics and limiting beliefs to just take over. So it's important to not stay in this place very long!
These journal prompts will help you get moving sooner.
It's usually not all that important WHICH idea you choose, just that you CHOOSE something and get moving with it.
But we all hesitate and second guess.
Your journal is such a good tool for this, to give you some space to dig deeper, maybe get some insights around WHY you're hesitating and second guessing this particular project, and help you get more clear about what to do next.
Journal prompts for when you have too many ideas and don't know which one to focus on:
Start by writing down ALL of the ideas - get them together on one page.
Then let’s play with ranking them!
Which one would be the MOST fun?
Which one would be the LEAST fun?
Which would be the EASIEST to do?
Which would be FASTEST to get done?
Which would take the most time?
Which would be the most difficult to actually pull off?
What's THE MOST inspiring idea?
Do any of the ideas feel kind of blah or heavy to think about?
Which one will help you reach your goals?
Which one has the biggest potential payoff?
Which one feels the most impossible?
You don't have to answer each of the prompts. It's more important to follow the rabbit-holes.
The point is to explore your ideas from different perspectives.
And while you do this...
What fears or limiting beliefs makes themselves known and what does this tell you about the inner work you need to focus on at this time?
This is the real thing to explore here.
I do have a this set of journal prompts for overcoming fear if you want to explore those.
You DO know what to do next. You just need to make space to HEAR your inner voice more clearly.
This is one of the themes of the Your Next Steps Class (my free class that helps you be more CLEAR and SURE about your next steps - register here if you're not already taking it!)
You already have the answers.
You already have everything you need to move forward.
But you need PRACTICES that help you connect with your inner wisdom and clear all the bullshit away so you can access all of this good stuff.
And you need to be doing the practices every day. They are every bit as important as the outer steps you are taking with your projects. This is the work that keeps your creative engine clean and running well.
I do this work every day in Dream Book and would love for you to join me there.
