It's pretty common for great ideas to get stuck as just that: ideas.
And this is pretty bad news if you've got something big on your mind. Sure, it may change the world (or at least your life), but as long as it's nothing more that a thought, it's not doing squat.
Today—with the help of Joe Gebbia, co-founder of Airbnb —we're going to take you through a little activity to help make your idea something more. All you need is a piece of paper, a pen or pencil, 10 minutes, and an open mind.
Ready to get started? Hit play below, then skip to the 7:30 minute mark (unless you're interested in hearing about the founding of Airbnb). Then, get imagining! Whether your idea is for a major new business or a slight adjustment to your day-to-day job, this short exercise can really make magic happen.
