On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
There are many excusesreasons excuses why your dream has stalled. Here’s a classic:
i can’t afford it
She can’t afford to hire a marketing person. Not many startup entrepreneurs can.
And i simply cannot afford to be someone else’s (random/last ditch) pitch person. When we can’t afford it because we don’t have the money is no different than when we can’t afford it because we don’t have the time.
And i don’t have the time because getting to the same emotional place as the creator doesn’t have a chance if i wouldn’t die for her idea.
Her’s is a really clever idea, but not worth dying for.
Note: One small example of how Disneyland was a successful failure. Even though he prepared, he realized only after the fact that he hadn’t purchased enough land. He severely underestimated the size of his dreams.
