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.
