We are idea people, and the world around us cannot see what we see, nor do what we do when it comes to generating ideas. That is a hard earned wisdom I have aquired during my years. Yet why are we not as "successful" as xNTJs or ESTJs?
Focus is one thing. This quote from Steve Jobs is a real gem (from Appleinsider.com):
Jobs outlined Apple's intense focus during an interview with Fortune in 2008. "Apple is a $30 billion company, yet we've got less than 30 major products. I don't know if that's ever been done before. Certainly the great consumer electronics companies of the past had thousands of products. We tend to focus much more. People think focus means saying yes to the thing you've got to focus on. But that's not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully," Jobs said.
"I'm actually as proud of many of the things we haven't done as the things we have done. The clearest example was when we were pressured for years to do a PDA, and I realized one day that 90% of the people who use a PDA only take information out of it on the road. They don't put information into it.
"Pretty soon cellphones are going to do that, so the PDA market's going to get reduced to a fraction of its current size, and it won't really be sustainable. So we decided not to get into it. If we had gotten into it, we wouldn't have had the resources to do the iPod. We probably wouldn't have seen it coming."
I really have this problem, but know about it and am fighting it as we speak, remaining committed to the projects started.
I guess you also have this problem?
