Start making something

Hi Guys, Well I am back after a long time. And it really feels good to write again. Well just had been busy with some startups ,failures and lots of learning. Had read a book called REWORK, got motivated and started doing lots of things over past years, and will keep continuing the momentum.

This article is for those who have lots of ideas but they fail to act.

We all have that one friend who says, "I had the idea for eBay. If only I had acted

on it, I'd be a billionaire!" That logic is pathetic and delusional. Having the idea for eBay

has nothing to do with actually creating eBay. What you do is what matters, not what you

think or say or plan.

 Think your idea's that valuable? Then go try to sell it and see what you get for it.

Not much is probably the answer. Until you actually start making something, your

brilliant idea is just that, an idea. And everyone's got one of those.

 Stanley Kubrick gave this advice to aspiring filmmakers: "Get hold of a camera

and some film and make a movie of any kind at all."* Kubrick knew that when you're

new at something, you need to start creating. The most important thing is to begin. So get

a camera, hit Record, and start shooting.

 Ideas are cheap and plentiful. The original pitch idea is such a small part of a

business that it's almost negligible. The real question is how well you execute.
