One of the weird things we face in creativity is that we never really have time to bring all our great ideas to life. Even people who claim to be blocked are blocked on that one idea – and usually have a dozen more to go.
And we’ll never act on all of them.
Creatives aren’t all troubled at the same level on this – some find it more painful whereas others barely think about it. But I hear this complaint of “I have too many ideas” way too often.
It’s up to each of us to cope with this in their own way, but it’s a peculiarity of the human condition. Here we are creative, our entire heads filled with worlds and dreams, and we can only realize but a fraction of them. It’s an irony.
