Amateurs v. Professionals

Via Bob Lefsetz. Read the whole thing here.

Amateurs/Professionals

AMATEURS

Have tons of ideas, are excited about all of them and see none to fruition.

PROFESSIONALS

Have tons of ideas, pick one and do their best to make it happen.

AMATEURS

Think they can do everything.

PROFESSIONALS

Know it’s almost impossible to achieve one thing.

AMATEURS

Think they know everything.

PROFESSIONALS

Are always learning.

AMATEURS

Start with no preparation.

PROFESSIONALS

Do research, they want to know where the bodies are buried, what the landscape holds. Better to take all these factors into account before you start, because trying to adjust on the fly is so much more difficult, it wastes time and energy and it’s hard to put a fourth wheel on a car you designed with three.

AMATEURS

Don’t finish.

PROFESSIONALS

Are all about execution. Sure, they occasionally abandon a project when they see further effort is fruitless, but the mark of a pro is someone who begins and ends. If you notice someone can’t complete a task, run from them!
