Are You A Dreamer Or A Doer?

The daydreamers sit down and think about what they could do but never follow through.

They are writers who constantly talk about how they want to write the next big film or book, or have an idea that will revolutionize the world. As time goes by, they will still be at the same point in life as they were before: the “I have an idea…” stage.

Dreamers have their feet in the air and their heads in the clouds.

The dreamer is a writer who lives or escapes to a world of fantasy or illusions and is referred to as a visionary or an idealist as opposed to a doer, or realist, a writer who seeks to represent the familiar or typical in real life rather than an idealised or romantic interpretation.

Doers have their feet on the ground and their heads in the sand.

What makes the doers distinct from others is the ability and the willpower to take advantage of opportunities that arise.

They have the ability to execute.

Daydreamers are wannabe-entrepreneurs; the ones who have the ideas and want everyone around them to put in the hard work. They think they have the next big thing but fail to realize that someone else out there probably has a similar idea.

Ideas in isolation are worthless — the value of an idea comes from its execution.

If you have an idea and don’t do anything about it, it holds no value whatsoever.

Just like in any other aspect of life, if no time or effort is put forth, return is minimal.
