Sage advice and great perspective as always Craig.
I really like this statement:
"Feelings last about three days, but values are there for the duration---regardless of how you feel about them."
Makes me realize that it`s not enough to build a business around your "passions" but that you have to really understand your core values to make sure your business venture aligns and promotes those. Perhaps that`s the key to focus and commitment.
Count me in the "dreamer" category as well. I have at least 2 business ideas I launch every year but I`ve yet to complete one. I usually either find that the business is not scalable or I come across another even more interesting idea.
Honest Query - Is this just the creative process or is there such a thing as an ADD entrepreneur?
I look at my friends who have own succesful businesses and companies and they each show an incredible focus and commitment to their objectives and rarely stray from their plan. Quite frankly and I don`t mean this as an insult, but they never spend time on entrepreneurial forums or reading entrepreneurial mags. They`re too busy executing on their plan and running a business.
Did they just hit on something that stirs their passion or is there something qualitatively different about these folks?
