How Can We Turn Ideas Into Actions?

I have plenty of ideas. In fact, I have so many ideas that it is often difficult to focus on just one, and so I never take action. Or a plan seems so big that it can be overwhelming to try to accomplish. Or laziness gets the best of you and nothing ever happens.

There are many reasons why a plan might never come to fruition. But how can we avoid that fate and turn our thoughts into reality?
