I think I have a really Good Idea...Now What?

I have this idea man, but really, now I'm not sure what to do so that no one goes to market with this idea before I can develope the technology. What can I do? What steps should I take and where do I get started? Frankly, this stuff is very confusing. So if someone could talk to me like I'm an idiot that would help.
 
Thanks

I don't know what you mean by that.  What deliverable do you not yet have that you think you might have later?  Patent application?  Invention data sheet to show potential investors/licensees?  Working prototype?  Sufficiently large lot of commercial embodiments of your invention to sell?
 
Which approach are you thinking of?  License to existing manufacturers?  Building your own business around your idea?  Lie-in-wait for unwitting infringers?

I would like to, develop the software (that would be the deliverable), and license it to an exisiting company. Could you point me to a source that can explain the steps of taking an idea, developing it, protecting it, and marketing it. I have almost nothing put together yet, I only have the idea. I've never acted on any of my ideas so I figure I'm might as well try and see if its a good idea. Thanks a lot for your time.
