Wise words that this week’s live chat host (RSVP here) Scott Belsky — one of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business (2010) — definitely lives by.
A Cornell undergrad and Harvard MBA, Scott is now an author, entrepreneur and bona fide thought leader in the creative field.
He co-founded Behance in 2006. Today, it’s the leading online platform for creative people to display and showcase their work. In fact, with over 30,000,000 project views per month, Behance is becoming one of the top traffic drivers for creative agencies and teams, period.
Not content to stop there, Scott is always looking to the future as he leads his think tank and annual conference, 99%. In 2010, he authored the internationally bestselling book, Making Ideas Happen — but as he is the first to acknowledge, the drive to create can sometimes be so strong that you never finish what you start before you’re on to the next thing.
That’s why action is the key ingredient in successful creative endeavors. His #1 advice for other creative ‘treps?
Above all else, work with a bias towards action.
Case in point, after realizing that the task management tools available out there just didn’t cut it for most creative thinkers, Scott and the Behance team created their own online and mobile productivity app – Action Method — to help others succeed faster. Like all of Scott’s projects, Action Method focuses on getting you to turn ideas into reality.
Want to learn how to do the same? Join us — and Scott — for an empowering, hour-long #StartupLab live chat presented by Citi this Thursday, November 29th at 3PM EST. Bring your most creative questions with you!
