Ideas are nothing without action

I love The Onion. And I love TED Talks. So I was tickled when my buddy, Erin Kane, a law professor who teaches legal writing and rhetorical analysis, shared this video one of her students found yesterday. What’s equally great is that the student, Troy Thresher, wrote: “I found myself analyzing the rhetorical commitments and strategies in this video.” Now that’s every teacher’s dream!

The video is an entertaining reminder that great ideas — no matter how interesting or even inspiring — have no impact unless we actually put them into action.  And implementing most ideas requires grunt work. And pro writing skills. Enjoy!
