What are good quotes from Will It Fly??
“In other words, a sure-fire way to predict the future is to take no action at all. When you do nothing, you get nothing.”
“I can give you a six-word formula for success: Think things through—then follow through.” —Sir Walter Scott”
“Create mode is when you’re imaginative, creative, and open to new ideas. Edit mode is when you are logical, regulated, and analytical. Most of us constantly switch back and forth between the two within a given piece of work, like when we write an email. You write a small part, read it, make edits, and then write some more. The major issue is that your editor brain gets in the way of your creator brain. It stops the flow, which can remove the potential of amazing thoughts that you didn’t even know exist in your head from ever coming out. You need these thoughts to surface during this experiment, but your editor brain can get in the way because it’s too focused on making everything right or perfect. Thinking puts your editor brain into the driver’s seat.”
“The Riches are in the Niches”
“I’m writing a first draft and reminding myself that I’m simply shoveling sand into a box so that later I can build castles.”
“Good ideas are common, but those who are willing to take action and execute those ideas are far more rare.”
“Your earnings are a byproduct of how well you serve your audience, and you can only best serve your audience when you know exactly who they are, what they’re going through, and what will get them to take action.”
“Every second you waste thinking about a hater or troll is a second you’re taking away from those who matter and can benefit from what you have to offer.”
“products and services we create as entrepreneurs are like elixirs—remedies or cures for certain “diseases” that are plaguing our target market. That analogy has stuck with me ever since.”
“There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.”
“What do you need to bring to the lot in order to give oxygen and life back to your audience, which may be tired of the same old stuff or looking for that missing puzzle piece?”
“The riches are in the niches, but the fortune is in the follow-up.”
