Coming up with brilliant ideas is fun. Working hard to turn them into reality is not as much fun. How do you stay motivated when the early excitement begins to wane and the project is far from complete? Scott Belsky shares his findings from interviewing hundreds of successful, creative people to detect how they traveled from the drawing board to the boardroom. He provides tips about how to traverse the “project plateau” without losing steam. Unfortunately, the camera work lags behind the speaker, and the slides are out of sync or out of sight. Nonetheless, getAbstract recommends this video to anyone who has a great idea but lacks a plan for seeing it through.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why it’s difficult to bring good ideas to fruition,
- What you can do to navigate the “project plateau” and
- What five techniques you can employ to execute a great idea.
