My little second cousin Kate (who is 14 now and I guess not so little anymore!) is getting interested in blogging and social media and making a living doing something that is not so "status quo" as she said (aw, isn't she smart?)
She sent me a bunch of great questions to get some insight into what I do and why I do it and I really liked this one in particular:
"How do you personally find and follow through on an idea?"
This was my response:
I find ideas by reading, exploring outside, talking to friends, sitting with myself and thinking. I like to try out lots of new ideas because you don't know what you might be good at, or love doing, until you try it! And when I start out on a new project, or art piece or business idea, I put a lot of energy and positivity into it, I brainstorm about it and set my intention to do my very best in following through with it. Not all ideas work out how you thought they would, not all projects get finished, but acting on your ideas can lead to new, even better ones! It's the action, the doing, the exploring that helps you learn about yourself and what you like and what makes you happy.
So now I throw it to you lovely folks, I'm curious to know how do you find and follow-thru on your ideas? How do you make things happen? How do you turn thought into action?
