Amateurs vs Professionals

AMATEURSrisk
Have tons of ideas, are excited about all of them and see none to fruition.

PROFESSIONALS
Have tons of ideas, pick one and do their best to make it happen.

AMATEURS
Think they can do everything.

PROFESSIONALS
Know it’s almost impossible to achieve one thing.

AMATEURS
Think they know everything.

PROFESSIONALS
Are always learning.

AMATEURS
Start with no preparation.

PROFESSIONALS
Do research, they want to know where the bodies are buried, what the landscape holds. Better to take all these factors into account before you start, because trying to adjust on the fly is so much more difficult, it wastes time and energy and it’s hard to put a fourth wheel on a car you designed with three.

AMATEURS
Don’t finish.

PROFESSIONALS
Are all about execution. Sure, they occasionally abandon a project when they see further effort is fruitless, but the mark of a pro is someone who begins and ends. If you notice someone can’t complete a task, run from them!

AMATEURS
Are worried about image.

PROFESSIONALS
Let their work do the talking.

AMATEURS
Demonstrate insecurity.

PROFESSIONALS
Are extremely confident.

AMATEURS
Can only see what’s in front of them.

PROFESSIONALS
Are all about the big picture.
