    How accurate do you think the idea conveyed here is?

    Lots of ideas but no execution may be a result of: no time, laziness, inability to concentrate, lack of skills or knowledge, lack of finances.

    Lots of execution but no ideas may be a result of: no creativity or no market research.

    Chime in. Lets hear some thoughts.

    i am assuming that the idea is a very marketable and profitable one? Taking action will make you successful. The more you do, the more you will make. As long you do not quit, then even IF you fail at one idea, you will come up with another idea. Success happens at one of the rolls of the dice.

    Pretty accurate. I think the thing where I fall down is that I have loads of ideas and try to execute too many of them - meaning I don't put enough time and energy into any of them.

    i think it's better to focus much more on less ideas and that should lead to better execution.

    That's correct. The main problem which contribute towards week execution is switching between different ideas quickly and not completing the one fully. It's better to put all effort in 1-2 projects at a time and switch only when they are fully completed.

    We all have ideas but it's very crucial to execute them. There's no dearth of ideas in all of us but how many of us really put them into practice and keep at it? I think this belongs here

    we execute the idea only if we don't open more and more tabs in the browser. All we are doing is just bookmark it or kept open the webpage of idea in idle mode in any one of tabs and look it once in every 3 months.

    Controlling the mind is very tough as IM is like a sea. we have deal with movies, social network chats, fun and ideas after ideas. It is tough.

    But, only hope is "everything is changeable in some day". But, we need to find out which day it is.

    I'm with David on this, have a folder full of ideas scribbled down and a couple of notebooks as well, and then 7 ongoing projects and not enough time for any of them.

    I've started cutting down on the numbers, prioritizing, making those ones wait that can afford to wait etc.

    I agree considering we said pretty much the same thing. Failure has to be taken into account. If there were 0 failures in our IM careers, we would all be millionaires by now.

    Although it sounds it's extremely cliché to say, we benefit from our mistakes and failures, I can vouch for it completely. If I hadn't failed on previous projects, I wouldn't have learnt to persevere or develop my ideas, which has been vital not just in my IM career - but life in general.

    Only trouble for me is I think of ideas but I either can not figure out the best method of execution or I fail with the execution due to lack of knowledge.

    I like to try and figure problems out myself but I need to start asking more questions because I'm getting nowhere fast!

    Exactly. Like when you blast your first website with scrapebox links and it gets deindexed or sandboxed. You learn to not do that again. Like they say, you live and you learn.

    I used to have dozens of ideas on making money and barely made any money at all, but then in the past year I limited myself to a few things, and it has increased my profits. I still come up with some ideas but they are mostly long term projects that I'm in the collecting information and building resources stage before I get to those projects.
