Almost nothing happens according to the plan

Yet we still benefit from making plans.

You know what it looks like and where it is and who the people are who will help get “there.”

With great anticipation and excitement about building this thing, you scratch a rough rendering of it on a restaurant napkin.

You start talking to other people in search of their endorsement that building this thing isn’t a crazy idea.

With your sanity affirmed, you move forward with some REAL planning.

That rough sketch on the napkin begins to gain clarity – to take on a form.

With the help of a specialist, you draft a blueprint with which you can interpolate probable scope of work and cost.

Now that you’ve got something more than “just an idea”, It’s time to enlist the right people to bring this thing into reality.

It is at this point that ACTION commences . . . enough of that dipping your toe in the water . . . It’s time to take the plunge.

This is the most scary moment.

What if it fails?

What if you build it, and they don’t come?

What will people think of you?

Does that really matter?

The truth is that all of those people you think might be judging you are likely in awe of your entrepreneurial Spirit and Chutzpah.

This isn’t about fear . . . of anything . . . It’s about acknowledging your true passion and following your heart regardless of naysayers’ murmurs as they shake their heads in disbelief of your adventurous, dangerous antics as they secretly crave to be so bold as you.

As you look back, you notice that most of what happened didn’t happen according to the plan, but it was all necessary stuff that you could not have possibly imagined in your wildest dreams . . . Stuff that built character, taught humility, strengthened resolve, learned whom of your “friends” really are . . .

Robert Burns : “The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men / Gang aft a-gley.”

Yes you CAN!

My wish for you is that you acknowledge your true passion and take responsibility through action . . . NOW!
