Screen Printing San Diego / Ideas vs Execution
This content was written for BREAKOUT CREATIVE
The world is full of opportunity. There are millions of ways to make money and live life. There is an infinite amount of ideas yet a finite amount of time. In my case, I own an Apparel production facility. I also have a promotional products distributorship. My passion is making music. I dream of producing, recording, self-publishing and distributing my own multimedia content. I’d love to write a book. I’ve studied and competed in Martial Arts for almost 30 years. When I’m not doing any of that, I day dream of travelling the world. My Screen Printing San Diego company, BREAKOUT CREATIVE, is the vehicle that allows me to pursue all my other dreams. Unfortunately, it took me far too long to come to this simple realization: Before I can have my other great ideas come to life, I must be brilliant at executing in my core business, BREAKOUT CREATIVE.

I’ve read that in our modern world, “Attention is the New Currency.” What do you day dream about? What must you be brilliant at executing first? In my case, life has been full and rich. A few years back, I thought I was “pulling it all together.” I completely remodeled my home, at long last creating a space I love. My first solo record was (is) about 90% finished. I was gigging regularly with my band. I was training Martial Arts daily and on top of my fitness regimen with weightlifting and swimming. I’d begun writing my first work of fiction. I started researching living abroad as I watched my brother accomplish it successfully. All was good. Or was it?
At first glance, it appeared I was on the verge of achieving many goals and completing many projects. But the reality was something altogether different. While it appeared all my great ideas were about to come to fruition, I dropped the ball on what was most important. While I was busy pursuing my passions, my company was about to fail. I got lost in ideas and failed to execute. In his book “The One Thing,” Gary Keller asks, “What is the one thing you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?” My truth is I lost sight of my one thing.
My good news is this: My passions aren’t going anywhere. My music will be completed. My book will be written. I still day dream of travelling. There is that clothing brand in development. There is that jazz instructional book I’m beginning to study. My Martial Arts journey will continue. But in the meantime, I’m “magnificently obsessed” with my one thing. My one thing is BREAKOUT CREATIVE and Screen Printing San Diego is my game. What is your one thing?
This article began like many others as an SEO article for my company. Occasionally, these articles morph into something else. Today I decided to just go with it and allow someone else to read my confession. Hopefully this can shed some light your way. The morale to the story is you must execute on your “One Thing” before your other ideas have a chance of becoming reality. So – what’s your “One Thing?”
