Learning how to turn ideas into action

Great Advice from Stanley Kubrick

I came across this while reading Rework by the 37 Signals camp:

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.”

This is just great, straight-down-the-line advice. Just do it, because the idea you have before you start is very rarely what you’ll end up with.
