re: Stop Asking, Start Doing VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I agree with you, Patrick. I try to follow these rules:

  1. I've got an idea - excellent.
  2. I'd like to think about it, to talk about it, to ask about it - not bad.
  3. I spent decent time on asking/thinking/talking - good.
  4. Now, and this is important, stop asking, start implementing.
  5. Finish it and see the result.
  6. If it feels like you can't start or will not finish it - so don't waste your time, through this idea away.
 

Hey Andrei,

Thanks, looks like a good checklist.
I think the magic lies in step 3. Try not to spent too much time in asking/thinking/talking but rather start implementing earlier. In my own experience I stopped there too often because I couldn't get out of the "thinking and talking about an idea"-trap. ;)

Take care,
Patrick
