Education and intelligence accomplish nothing without action.
It doesn’t matter if you have a genius IQ and a PhD in Quantum Physics, you can’t change anything or make any sort of real-world progress without taking action. There’s a huge difference between knowing how to do something and actually doing it. Knowledge and intelligence are both useless without action. It’s as simple as that. For some practical guidance on taking action, I highly recommend The Now Habit.

SO now go and create your show and promote it!

True, but in this case, as he himself admitted, he didn't have the experience or education. He signed up and accepted it first and then jumped in with how to pull it off. This is never a good approach. I think he was willing to take action or put in the effort but didn't properly know how.

It seems to be over, and I applaud him for his effort. However, it should have been a learning experience and education for him, and I know his experience could surely help others here and that have been following along with this thread, which is why I hope he posts here to share his experience so others can learn about it.

There was recently a 4 Walling post for someone who just tried to do a show of his own and stumbled and had some problems, but he can on here to share his experience with others and everyone was very nice and supportive of him and I believe it helped him as well as everyone following the thread.

Many threads here are about members successes or accomplishments, but while those are great it is the disappointments, setbacks and failures that we can learn the most from. It's also real-world actual experience which is what I always prefer to deal in rather than theory or armchair performers or event producers.

I hope he shares his thoughts with us.

"Never take advice from someone who doesn't have to live with the consequences."

My fathers advice to me from early childhood rings through my head as I read these posts.

I think I would add an addendum which involves not taking advice from someone who has never done what they are telling you to do. Much less succeed for any length of time.

I hope he did ok. I doubt it but I wish him the best.
