Few people changed American popular culture more than Walt Disney. From Mickey Mouse to his theme parks, Disney could be said to be as creative in his field as Steve Jobs was in his. What was the secret to his success? Disney himself might have captured it best in these words:
"The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing."
Disney's words should be taken seriously by anyone looking for a new job or trying to change careers. It's important to make plans before we act. However, too often making plans becomes a substitution for doing something. If you want to make a change, follow Disney's advice -- "begin doing."
