“Leap into the unknown. Ccourage will cushion your landing!”
It’s always most difficult to take that first step: but after that, you’ve got momentum on your side!
Big, bold decisions take guts, but inevitably, things will come to the point that it is clearly time to get moving. Action becomes inevitable. Initiative becomes oxygen. Decision-making is hyper-fuel.
Once you recognize that and get going, align to the momentum and prepare yourself for the ride!
What have I observed with over 25 years of experience in watching people and organization fail to align to fast trends? To miss opportunities for innovation and slide into inevitable sclerosis and failure?
Often, it’s this: an inability to take on the big decisions. Fear, uncertainty, worry, indecision. Organizational sclerosis clogs up their ability to move forward. They die.
There’s a reason the first part of my mantra involves the world “BIG” : Think big, start small, scale fast!
Thinking BIG will fill your tank with courage, because it will give you hope, a sense of opportunity, excitement for the future, even though there might be some trepidation with the unknown.
But that can be a better space than being stuck in the inevitable rut.
Courage is everything!
