6 Factors That Cause the Delay between Idea Generation and Idea Execution

Published

on

After asking people about their dreams, plans, and ideas, I realized that many people have big ideas, but few execute them.

Besides this, I noticed that the few individuals who execute their ideas delay executing them. Therefore, I analyzed the main reasons for this delay and I discovered the 6 main factors that cause the delay between idea generation and execution.

1.Procrastination

The primary cause of the delay between idea generation and execution is procrastination. Many people have ideas but keep postponing the execution date because they either lack inspiration or they fall for distractions.

2.Lack of Capital

The lack of capital is also a major factor that makes people delay executing their ideas. People have huge ideas but fail to execute them because execution requires funds. They, therefore, decide to look for money before giving life to their idea.

3.Doubt

Sometimes we delay executing our ideas because we don’t believe in ourselves. We think we don’t have the capacity to turn our ideas into reality, and we wait for inspiration before we execute them.

4.Waiting for the perfect conditions

Earlier, I always waited for the ideal conditions before I executed my ideas, and I came to realize that perfect conditions seldom arrive.

I thus discovered that waiting for the perfect conditions is also a reason why people delay executing their ideas. People often wait for the time when everything within and around them will favor execution.

However, waiting for the perfect conditions delays idea execution because these perfect situations often take long to arrive.

5.Waiting for Validation

Some of us fail to execute our ideas because we prefer executing them when other people prove their validity. We wait for people to tell us that our ideas are good before we execute them.

6.Laziness

People know that idea execution requires a considerable amount of effort. For this reason, they keep postponing the execution date because they are too lazy to invest their efforts in their idea.

Concluding Remarks

If you have an idea, don’t let procrastination, doubt, and laziness stop you from executing it. Also, never wait for perfect conditions because they rarely arrive.

Besides, you are free to ask people what they think about your idea, but don’t let their opinions make you give up on the idea. You are the only one who understands your idea. Other people’s viewpoints on your idea don’t matter.

Lastly, the lack of capital must not prevent you from executing your idea. You can create a plan, research about your idea, and build the skill set the idea will require while looking for capital.

I believe these are not the only factors that cause the delay between idea generation and execution. Therefore, you are free to add more factors in the comment box.

    Yes, those are definitely reasons why I’ve sometimes had trouble executing an idea. And I’ve also found that I can be easily distracted by bright shiny objects that seem to have the answers to all my problems.

How We’ve Let God Down

How We've Let God Down

God created us with the ability to self-reflect. We are the only creatures that can meditate on the infinite miracles that enable us to thrive on this planet.

However, instead of doing that, we constantly worry and stress over non-sense. We create a superficial reality that continuously stresses us for no reason.

As well, we never pause and appreciate the magical present moment and the mysteries of the universe because we are always anxious about useless things. We are addicted to worrying about our social status, and we love spending our time comparing ourselves to others.

Besides, we never meditate on the fact that we are magnificent beings that carry the spirit of God within us, and we seldom take time to smell flowers, watch the sun, the birds, and do other things that remind us of the existence of a magnificent spirit whose primary duty is to ensure that all creatures thrive on planet earth. In other words, most of us have lost the sense of wonder since we never look at God’s creation in awe and take time to appreciate it.

Moreover, we’ve let ourselves become slaves of a system created by tyrants whose only aim is to gain by overexploiting us. Instead of trying to get out of this system by employing ourselves and striving for enlightenment, we’ve let the tyrants govern our minds.

Besides, instead of fighting for the survival of planet earth, we’ve let these tyrants destroy the planet’s natural resources. Our forests are dying, many animals are becoming extinct, our air and water are getting polluted, but we don’t care because we are busy chasing paper, forgetting that money is useless without air, water, and other natural resources.

We’ve also descended into the egoic-consciousness, which makes us perceive ourselves as separate individuals whose main duty is to strive to be richer than others. For this reason, instead of loving each other unconditionally, we continuously judge each other and allow thoughts of envy, malice, and hate to dwell in our minds.

On top of that, we’ve forgotten that human beings are greater than the gods (spiritual entities, e.g angels, elementals, ghosts, etc) because we can attain both the human and god-consciousness. The gods can only attain the God-consciousness since attaining human consciousness is impossible to them.  However, we can transcend our human-consciousness by ascending to God-consciousness through spiritual growth, but we are unaware of this blessing because we’ve ignored the spiritual teachings handed down to us by the ancient masters.

Anyway, I don’t think God created us to live this way. I believe the factors that modern society promotes are responsible for this lifestyle that disappoints our Creator. We must thus rise above the modern illusory perception of life and strive to live the way we were designed to live because if we do so, we’ll live a life that delights our Lord God the Creator.

Modern Society and the Illusion of a Perfect Life

Modern Society and the Illusion of a Perfect Life

‘Man’s relentless pursuit of perfection in its countless different guises is the greatest cause of unhappiness in the world. Man mostly postpones his pleasures in life, suspends it until such time as he has the perfect career, the perfect home, or the perfect bank balance.’ – Theun Mares, Return of the Warriors

The media has overly promoted the illusion of a perfect life since it portrays celebrities as individuals with beautiful spouses, families, cars, and houses. As well, most social media users only post the good part of their lives hence making us believe in the illusion of a perfect life.

This illusion has resulted in us postponing happiness since we believe we’ll only be happy when we get a perfect relationship, body, house, job, etc. It makes us fail to appreciate our possessions and relationships because we feel they aren’t perfect. In other words, this illusion results in us failing to appreciate the gift of life as it makes us stress over the imperfect parts of our lives.

Moreover, the illusion of a perfect life makes us feel shameful when facing difficulties hence resulting in us hiding our difficulties. For this reason, we avoid asking for support during difficulties, and we try to deal with them alone hence intensifying their mental side-effects.

As well, the idea of a perfect life has intensified the fear of failure within us because it leads to the belief that failure is a sign of imperfection. We thus avoid chasing our dreams or pursuing anything that can lead to failure because we don’t want to be associated with failure.

Furthermore, believing in the possibility of a perfect life has led to feelings of inadequacy. We feel we aren’t enough, and we believe we are not important because we don’t have a perfect life.

Little do we know that no one lives a perfect life since everybody experiences hardships and tragedies. Besides, we are unaware that rich people, celebrities, and many other people we believe are living a perfect life usually have several aspects of their lives that are imperfect. Some of these folks have committed suicide because they still felt their life was imperfect despite achieving all their goals.

For this reason, I believe anybody who doesn’t find his life perfect today, will never find it perfect in the future, no matter what she achieves because there will always be a segment of her life that will be imperfect. I, therefore, think we should start appreciating our lives and realize that life is perfect the way it is.

Also, we should know that the imperfect parts of our lives are important because they stimulate personal development, and we must awaken to the fact that most of us will never see the need for working hard or improving our lives if everything was perfect.

Lastly, we should discard the illusion of perfection and realize that everything in our life, whether perfect or not, presents an opportunity for progress.

END.
