THINK, CONCEIVE, PUSH AND DELIVER

BY ADEYINKA ADEWALE

For everything that has been created or invented or brought to life, there are two critical stages: The Conception stage (the moment the idea was conceived) and the Delivery stage (the moment the idea comes to life).

What happens in-between is a process of growth from what we can refer to as the fetus to a fully grown child. Haven gone through the growth stages, a day comes in when the baby has to be delivered. Let’s think of it, ceteris paribus, the delivery process is meant to be naturally induced, at the set TIME, the baby begins to make its way to the exit point. It wants to be delivered and brought to life! Finally when it arrives, relief glides in the air. Along the way however, terrible things could happen that could lead to the termination of the ‘pregnancy’. This rather gory thing could take different forms. It could be a deliberate termination as in the case of an unwanted pregnancy or perhaps due several extenuating circumstances but the end result is usually the loss of a ‘child’.

Here’s the deal. We all came through the same process and can thus relate to them quite well! How this delivery process works with everyday life is the real focus of this piece.
Without a doubt, ideas pop up in our minds, we always love to do certain things in probably ways men have not done them before, for some the uniqueness of their concepts are so fantastic, that they actually get scared of bringing them to life (as in the case of unwanted pregnancies). These things are real, ideas belong to all men just as all men are permitted to have children at least if they want to.

ALL MEN HAVE THE RIGHT TO THINK AND CONCEIVE IDEAS. THE ONLY LIMIT TO WHICH THIS CAN BE DONE IS YOU!
But the critical question is

HOW MANY GREAT IDEAS HAVE POPPED UP IN YOUR MIND AND GOT TERMINATED?

Here is what you should understand that all great enterprises, probably Facebook is the most in-vogue, stated out as ideas (conception). These ideas were nurtured properly and allowed to grow (from fetus to a fully developed baby) and then delivered. The same thing goes for Microsoft, Apple, Nokia, Amazon and other corporations of global repute. The charge here then is that for every idea that pops up in your mind and you feel strongly about, allow it to be conceived. GET PREGNANT! That’s the first step. How you will take care of the pregnancy so that you don’t terminate it either knowingly or by error is what the rest of this piece addresses. Okay! Lets go!

1.DISCOVER THE PREGNANCY: This is the first thing. Haven had an intercourse with inspiration, ideas are conceived. Usually pregnant women don’t know they are pregnant immediately, however after a few weeks, they begin to see signs usually uncomfortable ones. So it is with ideas, once it pops up and it’s fixed on your mind, you begin to get uncomfortable and you think about it every time. That is a fantastic thing. It’s normal. This is a delicate stage there fore be careful! Critical decisions and steps that could keep or destroy the ideas are taken here especially when the idea seems to be a massive one that ‘you feel is too big to be delivered’.

NO IDEA IS TOO BIG TO BE DELIVERED. IF YOU CAN THINK IT, THEN YOU CAN DO IT. IF YOU CAN GET PREGNANT, THEN YOU CAN DELIVER IT!


2. FEED THE CONCEPTION: Diet is key to the growth of a forming child, so it is with ideas that pop up in our heads. Begin to nurture conscientiously and with utmost care. Know well that wrong substances that get to he baby at this point could either terminate it or cause it to be deformed at birth. Research properly, look for reliable intelligence, share experiences with the RIGHT PEOPLE who can give you the right tips. Get the positives (nutrients) in at all times and be weary of the negatives. Begin to see your child grow in your belly! It is still in you so no man can steal it! Go for regular check-ups (ante-natal care) with the doctors. For your dreams, your doctors are your mentors and close confidants who can help you examine the growth of your ‘baby’ and give you healthy advises to keep it going. This has to continue every step of the way.


3. BE WEARY OF ‘IDEACIDES’:  ‘ideacides’ as in pesticides are those unhealthy substances that could lead to the untimely death of an idea or concept you are carrying. These things come in myriads of forms. It could be your environment, past experiences, family or even friends. Therefore be extra cautious of those things that can cause your dreams to die and deliberately protect yourself and ideas from them. If you allow your baby to be aborted, the pains are usually enormous and the psychological peril that follows could be devastating. Unfortunately however, lots of people allow this happen to them.

DO NOT LET ANYTHING KILL YOUR DREAM OR TERMINATE YOUR CONCEPT. IT IS YOUR BABY AND THUS YOUR DUTY TO PROTECT IT FROM ANY POTENTIAL HARM.


4.  PREPARE TO DELIVER:  No man expects to have a baby without preparing a cozy, conducive place for the child to be laid. From the moment the estimated delivery date i.e the time you have set to deliver your concept into a tangible product or service is set, you begin to prepare. You have to look forward and shop the essentials and necessary infrastructure ahead  of time for the comfort of the child. The right people to help you over see the real ‘tangible’ the moment it arrives, launch platforms amongst others constitute this. They are critical hence have to be well prepared for.



IF YOU FAIL TO PREPARE, THEN EXPECT A DISASTER, FOR GREAT IDEAS NOT DELIVERED INTO PROPERLY STRUCTURED MECHANISMS, COULD BE DESTROYED IN NO TIME


5. PUSH PUSH PUSH…DELIVER!: This stage is the most critical. Many babies have been killed at the point of birth due to mistakes; many come forth with deformities not anticipated and so on. These are possible end lines which I strongly believe are not meant for any man reading this piece. You have to PUSH WELL to deliver. Pushing is key for the child does not just drop off! You have to put your all into helping your child come forth. At this stage, there is no return lest you lose it all. The push is the struggle to successfully help that concept you have been nurturing for some time become tangible. The process is tedious yet rewarding more than anything at the end of it all. Usually at the sound of the baby’s cry, relief sweeps the air and the doctors say ‘Congratulations, you did it!’


My desire for you this year is that you are able to conceive, nurture and bring forth those revolutionary ideas that can transform your life, be it at work, school or even your family. I believe strongly that we can do all things we wanted to do except we never really wanted them. So get the intercourse with inspiration going and deliver the future revolutionary tools for our generation. The world awaits your baby!
