“It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.”
~ George Eliot
For those of you who’ve watched the TV show Happy Days, you might recall The Fonz occasionally using the phrase “Sit on it” to essentially tell others to “buzz off.”
The WORST thing you can do as an entrepreneur is to “sit on it” or sit on your ideas. Rather, you must act on them. If not, someone else will. There are simply too many other entrepreneurs out there.
The saying “the richest place in the world is the graveyard” is really applicable here. Why is it the graveyard? Because that’s where the billions of ideas go that were in the heads of entrepreneurs who never acted on them.
If you have an idea for a new business, you must take the first step. Or you really can’t call yourself an entrepreneur — you’re just a “dreamer.” Sorry to be so blunt about this; but it’s the truth.
So take the first step.
I believe the first step is to develop your business plan. The business planning process forces you to really think through your idea, prove it’s viable (or not), and create an action plan for transforming your idea into reality starting now (not later).
So, if you’ve been sitting on an idea, STOP. Take action now. Don’t let Fonzie say “sit on it” to you.
