Try first, think later

“We have a strategic plan, It’s called doing things” – Herb Kelleher

I’ve noticed that the primary difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is that successful people seem to fail more.

All people we call brilliant and visionaries today, went through an enormous amount of failure to get where they are.
Einstein was expelled from school and wrote countless of papers that no one referenced, Henry Ford went bankrupt 5 times before he founded Ford Motors, Walt Disney was told “he lacked imagination and had no good ideas” and Oprah was fired from her job as a television reporter because she was deemed to be “unfit for tv.”

There are some exceptions to the rule, but most ideas started out as a tiny conviction that most probably no one but the founder themselves believed in. It takes hard work, dedication and guts to pursue that idea and turn it into a reality. Don’t be afraid to try something out in fear of failure. Have a great idea?  Define the smallest step that you can think of to get your idea started, the risks that you are willing to take for it, and then go for it!

For support on how to take that step towards pursuing your idea, and how to develop and execute it,
This Saturday (June 2nd) serial entreupreuner Roslan Bakri will be holding a CultureRun ShareShop on How to move ideas to action

What’s on this weekend!

Capturing iconic film scenes with a painter’s brush

Just discovered Massimo Carnevale’s amazing work! He does stunning tribute paintings of iconic film scenes. His bold style and heavy brushstrokes re-creates and captures vibrant and poignant emotions inspired by moments in films.

Thought I’d play a fun game with it, so the first person to guess which film this painting is based on wins a ticket to Shoot an Iphone Movie with filmmaker Kareem Koh or Introduction to Acting with actor Michael Chen ☺
