I had the most amazing idea come to me this morning when I was pounding away on my elliptical machine. Wait for it. It’s really that good so read slowly to get your head around it.
What if . . . I could invent a contraption that straps on to a piece of exercise equipment like said elliptical machine or a treadmill that would hold a laptop securely in place so that you could surf the net or even blog whilst getting your workout?
I thought to myself, Karen, you amazing woman, you! Wow, you’ve really outdone yourself this time! What an outstanding idea. All those running, blogging mamas would love me for this invention, right? I then immediately visualized tag lines for my product:
You can finish that run and THAT report!
Work your legs and your finger tips!
I caught carried away even more with my imagination and saw myself living a champagne and caviar(ewwww, can’t stand the stuff) fruit jet set lifestyle because my idea would obviously make me richer than I could ever imagine and continued to give myself kudos and congratulatory speeches!
Now, ideas for new innovative products come to me all the time. And, then I find out that somebody already beat me to the punch. That my idea is available in the stores or an infomercial. Or even on line.
Barstewards beat me to it again!
