"An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea." Often wrongly attributed to Buddha, but is from Edward de Bono. My shortened version of it is "Saying vs. doing."
I like this one because in development there can be strong ideas or regular meetings to brainstorm/generate ideas. Sometimes there is too much emphasis placed on what is the "best" idea. At the end of the day, if the best solutions are never implemented, what good are they? Talking about ideas can be fun, but consistently leaving those discussions without any follow up actions is draining in the long run. Time spent preparing and talking about ideas can sometimes be better spent on doing something to make progress.
