How to stay focused if you are too creative?

Creative people get lots of ideas. Some of them are good and many of them need reworking. The problem for creative people is to stay focused. They quickly get bored with their own ideas.

Here are few tips to stay focused:

  1. Scan through your ideas
  2. Select just one idea to work on
  3. Develop action steps to achieve that idea
  4. Determine at what stage of completion of the action steps you will start embarking on a new idea
  5. Implement those action steps
  6. Start o a new idea only after reaching an agreed upon progress of the first chosen idea
  7. Let all the new ideas incubate in an idea bank
You will be able to accomplish much more if you stay focused.
