All of us have ideas. Some of us have brilliant ideas. We also get ideas from others or by reading a book or watching a movie; Sources of ideas are plenty.
However, it is not the number of ideas you have that matters, it is the number of ideas you action out that will make the difference for you.
The time taken from an idea to action depends on the nature of the idea and the situation/context in which you operate. Hence, every idea has its optimum starting point and its own optimum speed of action.
Determining the optimum starting point, the speed of action and the deadline for completion is a task of utmost importance.
The time for such analysis and the treatment of the idea should be any where between zero to not more than 24 hours; Depending on the situation and context you are operating in and the nature of the idea.
Any idea delayed after 24 hours has the danger of being forgotten.
How you treat ideas will determine whether you are an "also ran" or an "Olympic Champion".
