Starting is the TOOL!
Do you want to do great work? Write a book, make a video, compose a song, play sports, start a business e.t.c You probably would need some tools to get started? Now question is…What tools do you need?
1.) For starters, I’ll argue that when it comes to TOOLS you really don’t need anything FANCY to start. As long as you START!
2.) Remember this…Great books have been written on expensive laptops, using complicated software and word processing. Equally great books have been written on pieces of papers and typewriters. So, the tool used for creating work isn’t the most important factor.
3.) No one reads a book or a blog post and says…”I like the word program that was used to create this.” Instead, they say…”I like the message, I like the ideas, I like the content that was shared in that book.” .
What does this mean for those of you who are builders, creators and innovators? It means…use whatever tool you can find, but don’t let the tools themselves get in the way of doing great work. Just start! STARTING IS THE TOOL!
CASE IN POINT: Some of my best and most liked photos on Instagram were taken on my crappy cellphone. Instead of my more sophisticated DSLR camera.
Stay Resourceful! Stay Humble!
