Making things happen is a lot about getting things done

Daniel Lewis is at it again. Still finishing his MBA, the first of a chain of micro-convenience stores is opening in the next few weeks. One of the most inspiring characteristics that Daniel demonstrates is that he just does things. Behance calls this “bias to action“. It’s great to be creative, but to be innovative (that is to implement and apply your creativity) or even to be memorably creative, you have to make things happen.

Marketing yourself is vitally important of course – such is the role of self-presentation and self-promotion – but you also have to get things done.
