Thinking is easy. Doing is hard. Finishing is nearly impossible.
Thinking up bottled water was easy. Hundreds, if not thousands, of people thought it. But turning it into a manufacturing process, navigating legalities, convincing distributors and grocery stores; That’s hard. Then tying all the details together into a coherent and easy to find object and actually launching it; that’s finishing, almost no one does that.
Thinking about making some art is easy. Hell, it’s even fun. In fact, it’s addicting to enjoy the imagined version of your self as a person who makes/draws/writes/does. But, getting out a pencil and doing sketches, with effort and a critical eye; that’s hard and humbling. Drawing/writing/making/doing art every single day, with deliberate self expanding practice, again and again and again until you edge closer to the artist version of yourself that you had always imagined; almost no one does that.
People who finish add immense value to the world.
