    Thanks, John. Great video! Hard to pack something useful into 2min, however, you packed so much into those 2min!

    I am in the process of writing a book and starting to work on mobile apps.

    Thanks John, for the reminder. So, I write it down here: my blog will start in 30 days. I am doing it – I’ll try!

    My idea was to create We started with one event and are now gearing up to our fourth! I agree – there is no point talking it over, just get on with a project and see where it takes you!

  • Muthu

    Extraordinary insights. On my own, it would have taken years probably to come to recognize the 3 points you made. Thanks John. Thanks very much.

  • johnsw

    Thankyou Muthu! We’re not taught this at school so I’m passionate about getting these ideas out there

  • johnsw

    to be honest I haven’t decided yet…too many things going on in my scanner brain ๐Ÿ™‚
    maybe about creativity in my daily life … or about having fun as a scanner

    I have to agree that it doesn’t matter what ideas you have. Start you must. After a year, I’ve finally have a clearer picture.

    I just need to start. Good video. Too hung up on the perfect idea. Worried about whether it will work. Knock backs. Failing.

  • Richard_Pettitt

    Great little video. So true. It was only by starting and trying things out this year that I realised what I truly enjoy doing and what other people are prepared to pay for. I am learning so much and getting so many ideas from the process of doing, not just thinking and planning.

  • Like this video, thank you. A while ago I started to laugh. Then I started to give workshops to other people. Because I said it was the best thing I could do I got more workshops. Then I wrote a book. Now I am creating an online course. All about laughting. But the start was just one laughter workshop with a lot of fun and a desire to grow.

    Hi John! Thans for that inspiration. In my yoga and Pilates business I want to build up to training teachers but I have decided to start with a 21 day email programme for my current students to get them more used to working with me online. Check out because the programme starts in October!
