"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

According to the Behance Team, which operates the leading online platform for creative professionals, as well as the 99% Conference, a major annual symposium on execution in creative industries, here are 10 laws of productivity consistently observed among serial idea executors:

1. Break the seal of hesitation.

2. Start small.

3. Prototype, prototype, prototype.

4. Create simple objectives for projects, and revisit them regularly.

5. Work on your project a little bit each day.

6. Develop a routine.

7. Break big, long-term projects into smaller chunks or “phases.”

8. Prune away superfluous meetings (and their attendees).

9. Practice saying “No.”

10. Remember that rules – even productivity rules – are made to be broken.

[For more information, read 'Making Ideas Happen: Overcoming the Obstacles Between Vision and Reality', by Scott Belsky, founder & CEO of Behance. Their Action Method [with the apt tagline: "It's not about Ideas. It's about Making Ideas Happen!"] is interesting, & is worth exploring.]
