Be like Frankenstein
As I’m sure you know, Frankenstein was the fictional scientist who breathed life into his famous monster. Like him, it’s absolutely essential that you give a proper birth to every good idea you have. Each idea you think up is like a delicate newborn baby and unless you give it two things, it can easily die.
It needs: food and armour. The most important meal you can give an idea you have is to immediately write it down or make a note of it. How often have you thought of a fantastic idea, only to forget it a few hours later or the next day? By turning the ideas you’ve written down into some kind of initial mock-up, rough sketch or model (this is the armour bit), it will immediately give your idea a massive boost in power and give it the best chance of living a fruitful life.
