On this month's Penguin Business Beat, Courtney Young and Laura Clark tackle how to more effectively get from having a good idea to actually making it happen. With so much work to do and so little time to do it, many great ideas remain just that: ideas. So how do we make more ideas into successful finished projects? Laura and Courtney grill a number of experts on how to really get things done. Portfolio President and Publisher Adrian Zackheim shares his insights on how to turn an idea into a successful book. Scott Belsky, CEO of Behance and author of Making Ideas Happen, explains the importance of organization in the creative process. 800-CEO-READ's Jack Covert, author of The 100 Best Business Books of All Time, unlocks the secrets of David Allen's Getting Things Done. And Dan Roam, author of Unfolding the Napkin and The Back of the Napkin, reminds us that a big part of getting from vision to reality is really understanding your vision—and drawing some simple pictures is a great place to start.
