Gapingvoid - silly dreams

Sometimes dreaming must die to make way for dreams to come true. Paraphrasing from Jessica Abel’s article, “Imagining Your Future Projects Is Holding You Back”, Hugh posted these comments to accompany his piece above…

  • Idea Debt is when you spend too much time picturing what a project is going to be like, too much time thinking about how awesome it will be to have this thing done and in the world, too much time imagining how cool you will look, how in demand you’ll be, how much money you’ll make. And way too little time actually making the darn thing.”

Leadership might have a vision of the upside, but without the counterbalance of managing execution, nothing will be achieved. Sometimes finding the balance is driving more execution, but sometimes it is dreaming less.
