The Roller Coaster of launching an idea

Seth Godin posted his Roller Coaster of Shipping a new book the other day and it really resonated with me.

It is exactly the roller coaster I have been going through with my new learning centre idea and bringing iLearn to reality.
I just changed a few words and wrote it from my point of view.
We have not launched yet the roller coaster of feelings and reality match up really well.

Prototype, People and Program

Wow. What an exciting few weeks.
People I have met interested in this model of learning.
People who are keen to be involved.
Possible places to buy or rent.
Ideas all over the world to use and adapt.

Time now to settle back into reality.
Working now on just using the room I have (no extra cost) – refit our games room to be just how we want it to be.
Link with a couple of key mentors for the students and see how they fit the learning prototype I am creating.
Develop the program using the key elements/principles that produce a personalised learning approach.
Chuck out all the rest or wait to use them if they fit the learning needs of a student.

Discipline is needed now to get to work on what will produce the required result. (Seth Godin tip)
