1% ideas 99% perspiration

I recently stumbled upon a post on Cool Hunting about

the 99% Percent Conference

It’s time to stop dreaming and start DOING….THIS is what the 99% Conference – which was named from Thomas Edison’s famous quote that “Genius is 1% inspiration, and 99% perspiration”,  is all about.

I was asked to host a civic dialogue at local coffee shop, Phoenix Coffee this past weekend and one of the questions I was asked was:  “what do you think is the biggest road block to someone following their dreams” and my answer was “themselves”.

Lot’s of us come up with great ideas, but often times don’t ever execute them, as we are waiting for ‘the perfect time’ or ‘i don’t have enough money’ or whatever the road block is, and let me tell you, those that actually get to idea execution are NOT just independently rich loafers with a ton of free time…i promise that much…
