I was at a meeting this morning where the notion of "Practical Dreamers" came up. It was proposed that practical dreamers, when they are 100% committed, become extraordinary leaders.
I think this is particularly true for entrepreneurs. Dreaming is the first requirement; revolutionary ideas are products of creative thinking and dreaming. But you need to be practical. If you possess both abilities, then you add 100% commitment and the combination becomes a recipe for success.
I know this sounds a bit cliche and obvious. But it made me think about the entrepreneurial successes I have witnessesd in my career and without a single exception, they each had all three elements.
