Old Chinese proverb I just made up.
A lesson I have learned the Hard Way: Those who talk about doing, NEVER DO. Those who STFU and show what they’ve DONE, win.
Alan Pritt: STFU and Do It
And now Derek Sivers, at TED:
It really is better to have nothing to show than to be thought of as some pathetic loser whose talk talk talk can’t lead to any action. At least people won’t have in their minds your string of failures.
So, just shut up. Talk about only what you’ve gotten done.
And, for god’s sake, avoid kittens!
