Maker vs. Talker vs. Thinker

Stop thinking about solutions. Stop talking about what you will do. Start making things happen because the world will never change due to your talking and thinking alone and instead you must think + talk + make all at the same time! - Jared Yellin

I am genuinely interested about something…


Which type of person inspires you more…?


The person who THINKS about a solution…

The person who TALKS about a solution…

The person who MAKES the solution…


You might feel like this is a loaded question, but it’s not because each of these people play a meaningful role in the solution process…


The THINKER develops an if/then statement to derive a solution...

The TALKER rallys energy around the solution...

The MAKER creates the solution…


But what if you could be all three?


Many people ask me how I am able to execute so quickly on sooooo many ideas and opportunities and my answer is very consistent…


I combine THINKING + TALKING + MAKING whenever I see an inefficiency that needs a solution.


Now independently, THINKING and TALKING and MAKING are suboptimal because…


There are many many MAKERS that exist that did not put enough thought into the solution and miss the mark…


There are also many TALKERS who rally energy around their solution but are unable to sustain the velocity because they don’t make change occur…


There are also many THINKERS that will die with their ideas inside, which is unfortunate because their ideas might just be the solution to the inefficiency...


The fact that merging together THINKING + TALKING + MAKING is a requirement happens to be why entrepreneurship is darn hard and only a fraction of a fraction can make it...


BUT…


You can fall into this FRACTION by making the CHOICE…


THINKING + TALKING + MAKING is simply a decision…

THINKING + TALKING + MAKING is simply a discipline…

THINKING + TALKING + MAKING is simply a commitment...


Let Me Tell You About Robert…


I was recently introduced to Robert (whose name was actually not Robert, but I will keep his identity hidden for now) who is a brilliant mind.


He has an extraordinary technological idea that has been tormenting him for nearly three years…


His family has tried to push him into execution…

His friends have threatened humiliation if he does not do something with the idea…

His colleagues have begged him to quit his secure job to pursue his vision…


The challenge that Robert faces is that he ONLY possesses the ability to THINK and TALK about his idea because the fear he has attached to MAKING is more painful than holding onto his idea and potentially never executing upon it.


Please read this again…


Robert’s FEAR of MAKING is more painful than holding onto his idea and potentially never executing upon it.


And Robert is very similar to many other people as well…maybe even YOU!


Let’s Merge Your THINKING + TALKING + MAKING...


There are three types of people that exist...


#1 ChangeTHINKERS

#2 ChangeTALKERS

#3 ChangeMAKERS


ChangeTHINKERS die with their ideas inside.

ChangeTALKERS disappoint people because they talk change, but don’t do change.

ChangeMAKERS potentially miscalculate their ideas and fall short on execution mode.


Here’s what I find exciting...


Like I mentioned above, You CAN be all three by simply making the CHOICE…


I am no different than YOU, other than the fact that I have setup triggers in my life to THINK + TALK + MAKE very quickly when an opportunity presents itself.


First, I think about the inefficiency and what the solution must be.


Second, the moment I am clear on the inefficiency and the solution I talk about it publicly to collect data based on the responses of people.


Third, I force myself to MAKE IT HAPPEN by taking an immediate action step forward whether it’s incorporating a company, finding a partner, raising capital, assigning work to an engineer, etc. I must do something that creates velocity at this stage.


I invite you to pick one inefficiency right now that you know exists and step into this three step process because on the other side of THINKING + TALKING + MAKING is what you ultimately desire…


CHANGE!


Are you ready?
