Act on Ideas: Wednesday Wisdom

Act on ideas

This week’s piece of Wednesday wisdom comes from entrepreneur and pioneer of the animation industry, Walt Disney.

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” – Walt Disney

Key takeaway:

While planning is vital in running a retail business, those who often gain customers’ business are the ones which act first. Overthinking can lead to continuous redevelopment of ideas, which can be time-consuming and stop the trialling of ideas. 

Without acting on ideas and decisions, you are not able to put these into practice; something which must be done to test how successful it may be moving forward. 

The best way to reach an objective is to get started, putting in the groundwork and making improvements as you go along.
