Skimming the Cream

Ideas that are captured, then left to languish and starve on a dusty Someday/Maybe list, buried under piles or filed away and forgotten are wasted.

Continually review and evaluate ideas to choose the best ones to act on.

  • Why is this a good idea? Does it fit my goals?
  • Which ideas provide the best return on investment?
  • What resources would be needed?

Skim the cream: concentrate on the top ideas, projects, and goals.

Plant ideas, but don’t bury them: give them enough time to germinate, but not so much that they turn into compost.
