The Thing More Important Than Ideas

ideas generatingI know meetings. I can do meetings. Actually, let me humblebrag a bit, I excel at meetings. I’m an idea guy all the way. Need ideas? I’ve got plenty of ’em.

But, as a friend and colleague reminded me this morning, having an idea is one thing and getting it done is another. Uh oh. He’s right. Brainstorming is a great exercise for getting many ideas, but the time comes to kick the tires and drive it around the block.

Better to find a few great ideas and make them happen rather than have an abundance of only good ideas but never get them rolling. Dreaming and doing – two necessary but separate functions!
