About this talk
We’ve all experienced it. After the high of a new idea fades, we enter the dreaded period of execution where nothing remains but the arduous task of actually doing. At this crucial juncture, our natural tendency is often to dive back into idea generation—to re-attain that new idea high—rather than seeing the original idea through to the finish. Here, Belsky talks about methods for keeping great ideas alive—seeking constraints, finding beauty in organization, short-circuiting our rewards systems, and more.
