January: Create

This month's topic: create

Ideas are cheap. Ideas are easy. Ideas are common. Everybody has ideas. Ideas are highly, highly overvalued. Execution is all that matters.
— Casey Neistat

We all have ideas, right? Sometimes it feels like we have too many ideas! Taking action to turn your ideas into reality is the hard part.

Create: bring (something) into existence.

This month we are going to focus on bringing your ideas into existence.

Whether that's writing and recording songs for an album, starting a new blog, or whatever... let's stop just thinking and start creating.

In this workbook...

  • Page 1: Brainstorm, braindump, mindmap... whatever you want to call it, write ALL of your ideas down. Get it all out, big and small, easy and hard, short-term and long-term.
     
  • Page 2: Next, narrow down your ideas to 2... one you're most excited about and one that you want to accomplish for yourself, and list out the steps you need to take in order to to bring these ideas to life. Now you have a game plan!
     
  • Page 3: The reason so many people have ideas and don't execute on them, is because the creative process is not easy! You're going to be excited one moment and frustrated the next. You'll be super confident in your idea but have self doubt at the same time. This is where most people get held up... but you joined the Bestie Membership because you want to make a difference. Use page 3 to write down what you learn about yourself during the creative process... recognizing these traits about yourself will make you a stronger, more confident creative!
