Do you know anyone who has lots of great ideas but seldom (if ever) takes any action on them?
How does that work for them?
I've seen people who were completely frustrated because they didn't get what they wanted and hoped for -- but didn't do anything to bring their desires into reality, either. I've done that myself.
Ideas are great. Actions make things happen.
Act on your great ideas and your great ideas can come true. Sit on your ideas and, well, nothing happens. The universe isn't really listening to your wishes with any plans to bring them about. It's up to you.
It's up to us to make our dreams come true, to turn them into goals and then plans and then actions. Actions!
Our best ideas are only as strong as the actions we take to bring them about.
Successful supervisors are people of action. Centered leaders bring great ideas AND decisive actions into play. High performance leaders act on their ideas.
What actions can you take today?
