My conversation with God on the difference between an “idea” and a “vision”


ideas v. vision

My mind never stops.  I literally have to force it to shut down. It’s always filled with questions. thoughts. wierd and wacky ideas.

Here’s how it works:

A question pops in out of no where.  Like:

“how can i make money? how can inspire people? how can i show him i love him? how can i challenge my son to be awesome everyday? how can i grow this business? how can i make this life meaninful??? how, how, what, how….???”

After that, a gazillion ideas begin to flow… 

So I asked God, “How am I supposed to know what to pursue and what to not waste time on???”

God: You can pursue whatever you want.  The lesson for you is knowing the difference between an “idea” and a “vision.”

me: “Well, what’s the difference?”


An idea is attached to a thought in your brain.

A vision is attached to a feeling in your Spirit.

An idea can be fleeting, it can pop into your mind without warning and pop out just as quickly.

A vision tends to stick around for a while.  It props its feet up on the coffee table of your life. It constantly yet subtly reminds you of its presence and it will not let you rest until you do something about it.  It is elegantly persistent.

An idea needs support.  It usually has to be paired with other ideas and strategies to make it make sense.  

A vision can stand alone.  No assembly required.

An idea is inspired by the extermal experiences of your life.

A vision is born from the divinity inside you.

An idea “might” work out in your favor.

A vision is guaranteed to succeed.

An idea wants your effort and sweat equity.

A vision wants your love, commitment and faith.

An idea can be put on hold.

A vision burns to be set free NOW.

An idea comes with the possibility of success.

A vision comes with the promise of joy and satisfaction.

An idea is an assignment you give to yourself.

A vision is MY assignment to you.

Is the life or business you are creating built on an idea or a vision?
