When I was younger I thought my ideas were the most valuable thing I had to offer this world. In fact I even thought my ideas were more valuable than others work they were doing… and while this is certainly an affliction our society suffers from… it wasn’t until recently that I even realized that such thinking was a problem. I even told one of my bosses this as I was leaving… I didn’t have enough time to complete a project I had been working on before moving on… and the message I left with it with what I had done, and the notes I had while building it was that the idea was more valuable than the work I had done… Seriously… the audacity!
Yeah, well as it turns out, ideas without action have very little value. Everyone needs goals and ideas to keep them on track, but you must put action to those goals and ideas or you’re just spinning the wheels in your head!
