A Lot of Ideas Look Great on Paper

Posted on 25 December 2013 by Andrei

… but in the real world, things are unfortunately a bit more complicated.

I remember my first business idea like it was yesterday. I distinctly remember my first strategy as a domainer as well. I had it all figured out… or so it seemed 🙂

On paper, everything looked great.

The strategy seemed sound and backed by logical arguments.

As far as I was concerned, it was pretty much a done deal and all reality had to do was confirm just how right it was. Needless to say, I quickly realized that no matter how logical everything may seem on paper, you can be reasonably confident that in reality, your plans won’t materialize as easily as you had hoped.

It’s always easy to criticize.

When doing that, people often formulate arguments which again, look great on paper.

But if the person in question would have to actually implement them, I assure you it would be considerably harder than sharing an opinion. That’s why nowadays, I always ask myself two simple questions before criticizing someone: do my own results when it comes to that niche justify my belief that I’d be able to do a better job?

Several years ago, I was guilty of being quick to judge businesses, strategies and so on. But as time passed and as I started to understand just how hard it is to make things happen, I became a lot more reasonable and a lot less eager to criticize.
