Busy Building Things (BBT) is an inspiration shop for community of doers, go getters, and sleepless dreamers. They make beautiful motivational prints like the ones you’ll see below! Enjoy!


Now is the Time
The moment to change the world is today. Whether you’re starting a new venture, dreaming of the next revolutionary product or building a sustainable path to the future, do it now. There’s no better time than now!


Always Finish
“You’re the type of person that doesn’t leave anything half-done. The journey is long and tough, but you keep going. You’re a creative warrior – and warriors always finish what they start.”


Everybody has a Plan
You never want to find yourself lying motionless in a ring with Mike hovering over you. No, we wouldn’t wish that on anyone. Plus he’s already forewarned us, “Everybody has a plan ‘till they get punched in the face.” Therefore you need a Plan A, B, C, D, and perhaps even a Plan Z for good measure. Roll with the punches and push through the pain…eventually you’ll find a plan that works!


Execution is Everything
We all have the capacity to dream, but great ideas are meaningless without powerful, fast execution. As Thomas Edison wisely said “vision without execution is hallucination”. Let’s get to work and make those dreams a reality!


Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Edison, and Frederick Douglas all had one thing in common: Hustle. They embodied the spirit of what it takes to overcome obstacles and excel. Abraham Lincoln was aware of this and underscored this mantra with his famous quote: “Good things come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.”


Make it Look Nice
Looks aren’t everything, but in building beautiful products they are super important! Sure quick and dirty is cool but taking a bit more time to ‘Make it Look Nice’ makes all the difference.


Real Artists Ship
An ode to the visionary who changed the way we think about the world and challenged us to venture beyond the ordinary. Steve Jobs was known for his motivational epigrams to rouse his team and push them to deliver. We chose our favourite: ‘Real Artists Ship’ because great ideas need not delay. Get out there and start shipping!


Rise and Grind
You hear the dreaded morning alarm, you search for the snooze button and you fight to get yourself out of bed. Not to worry though, we’ve got just the thing to remind you that the early bird gets the worm: Rise & Grind. Then help yourself to a cup of joe.


Scratch Your Own Itch
There’s nothing quite like the self-fulfilment that comes from solving your own problems. And hey, we already know of at least one customer for your product. Make something you want!


Start Something
You conceived it. You designed it. You built it. And once you ship it, you join a class of individuals who took an idea and made it reality. Cast away your fears and make the jump. All you have to do is START!
