In helping facilitate a class on entrepreneurship last week, I told the group: "You're all out of your minds. That's a central truth about starting a company."
And sure, you've got to be a little crazy to think your idea can work.
But you've also literally got to get outside of your own head.
When your idea only exists in your head or your heart, it doesn't yet stand a chance of success. You need to run some numbers on paper. Flesh out the business model. Set some deadlines.
This applies whether you're starting a business or launching a new program at your college or workplace. When it comes to creation, your dream needs to live out in the world, not merely forever in the recesses of your heart.
Your better tell somebody.
So please. Please be out of your mind. We need you to.
