When Your Big Creative Idea Flops, Tap Into Your Forward Flywheel

Before we get into anything about your creative idea flopping, I just want to make one thing clear: this is not a post about failure.

Start with acceptance

There’s something very important that you have to accept right away….

Reset your mindset

It’s not an understatement to say that mindset is everything. It’s the lens that allows you to see any situation one of two ways: as a problem or as an opportunity.

Embrace your next “bad idea”

When something flops, it’s a very human response to call it “a bad idea.” After all, if it was a good idea, it would’ve been a hit, right?

Lean into uncertainty & let resilience be your roadmap

Have you ever noticed how the world’s most famous inventors get credit for their ingenious creations, but we seldom get to hear about the effort and thousands of experiments and failures that led to their lightbulb moments?

Lead with interest, inquiry and intention

I believe that the greatest question we can always ask ourselves and others is WHY?

Get back to it. Ideas are nothing without execution!
