The problem with creators, entrepreneurs and all these kinds of people is that we’ve got ideas, we’ve got lots of ideas, probably too many ideas. The answer is quite simple, it’s the art of saying no. Now as creative people and entrepreneurs we always want to say yes, we always get excited by the new idea and go off chasing after that, rather than completing the last brilliant idea that we had. I think you need to commit to those initial good ideas and complete on them so you can see if they succeed and then you can move forward from there, because the more stuff that stacks up on your plate the more stressed out you get, you’re spreading yourself thin, there’s less chance of completing any of those jobs and if you don’t complete any of those jobs you’re never gonna succeed. So just say no.
