Ideas are great. Thinking about the possibilities, the options, the details…all fun stuff.

But nothing counts until you actually start to take action.

It’s Christmas 2012 as I write this, and as such I’m thinking about many of my friends and family…my peers, my mentors, advisors, and even a business associate or two…but until I take a moment to actually send them a note, a Tweet, an email, or maybe even physically stop by or call them…thinking of them means nothing externally. They don’t know what I’m thinking, how I feel, or even that they are on my radar at all (and many probably don’t care).

It’s the same way with software and it’s the same way with startups. Until you actually do something, just thinking about it gets you no where externally. Nothing happens.

Anyway, just something to think about over this holiday season…do what you like with it! ;-)
