Whenever I’m at a Hollywood party I meet plenty of “idea” people. Apparently, some people actual think that’s a job. I’m a big fan of ideas, and I’ve spent my career working in a creative business. But as great and rare as real creativity is, that’s only half of the puzzle. The other part – and it’s just as important – is execution. Ideas without legs aren’t ideas at all – they’re just thoughts that don’t amount to much. Execution is what makes ideas happen.
Remember – the guy who invented the wheel is smart. But the guy who invented the other three – he was a genius.
Become a “make it happen person.” Because idea people alone don’t do much more than go to parties….
