I am a serial planner striving to be a serial doer.
I have talked a lot and shared my plans (on paper), a lot. You? (Or am I the lone sheep here. Anyone?)
All of us have great ideas. And we begin to give those ideas feet as we write down the plan for making our ideas fly. The plan is good, and the time has come to execute.But--
I'll do it when I have more time, or
I'll do it when I have more money, or
I'll do it after the holidays, or
I'll do it next weekend, or
........ (tick tock tick tock tick tock....)
And we act as if we have all the time in the world to soar. Time is laughing.
Say, what if we acted as if we only had right now (since all we have is right now)? Personally, I can win the "Name Your Excuse" game, but the prize sucks. What can you do with a bag of excuses? Not a thing.
Let's make our plan and note our excuses as barriers (to overcome!) Most importantly, let's work that bad boy plan. We are incredibly creative to do what must be done for our flight. We will not wait for everything to be perfect, but rather do the best we can with what we can, right now.
We have what we need. Now, prepare for departure and take off.
