What is your excuse?


I am surprised that many entrepreneurs have ideas but take no action to make it come true. One of the greatest tragedies in business is to have a dream but take no action to make it come true. To die with your dreams still inside you, waiting for another time, another day, or another “big break” is among the greatest of  life’s failures. Do not wait!  Start today.


The Powerful Magic of Small Steps

Literally everything you see and every tool you use, even the chair you’re sitting on, began as nothing but a thought. Someone had an idea for a chair. Henry Ford had an idea that cars could be in every garage. Your computer began as an idea and a series of huge, crude devices back in the 1940′s. The actual computer you are looking at right now began as someone’s idea that they could manufacture and sell computers better, faster and cheaper than anyone else.  This is what we now call innovation (making things better, faster and cheaper than the last invention). Everything starts with an idea. It always has, and always will.
Many people have observed that “ideas are things.” Thoughts and words have the power to move us. To change us. To become living, breathing and tangible things! In a sense, our world is made up of nothing but thoughts and words!

But there is a gap between an idea and its fulfillment.   

Most “things” are actually still-born and never come to fruition because we fail to span the space between potential and reality. That gap can only be bridged with daily action.

How many times have you thought of an invention or process that could be worth a fortune, done nothing about it, and then found that a similar product is for sale a few months later? We’ve all had that experience. Someone got rich off “your” idea and the difference is that they took specific, concrete, focused ACTION. Their product is in the store making them money, and your idea is still…a dream in your mind. Procrastination is truly the thief of time.


Here are some essentials to make your dreams come true:

1
Plan your days. Every evening, plan the following day. First thing in the morning, plot your strategy. Leaders have always done this! This is not new! But only about 4% of the population do it. Write down your priorities and choose your daily actions.

2
Keep a list of the big things. On your desk, or on your bathroom mirror, keep a list of your most important projects, goals and commitments. Keep it where you see it, and read it, every day. Keep it current. What we think about, gets done easily and fast.

3
Keep a list of small things. Keep a list of 5-minute tasks, phone calls or notes that you can do any place, any time. When waiting for an appointment, make that call. When you have a minute, send a note or read a few pages. Always know “what’s next” and take action, every single day.

4
Take magnificent care of yourself! Healthy, happy, energetic people get the most done. It takes time and energy to achieve greatness. If you “don’t have time”, or are “too tired” or too distracted or too anything, you will not achieve your dreams. Take care of yourself.

We’ve all heard the phrase, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” But it did get built. Brick by brick, one day at a time, with determination and persistence. And 2,000 years later, we still marvel at what they accomplished!

It is rare to achieve great things overnight because in general, human beings do not do “big” things. We do little things. We get up, we go to work. We hug our loved ones, we make phone calls. We balance the checkbook and fix dinner. We do little things! Highly successful people simply do the right little things, at the right time, in the right way, and they do lots of them.

If you would achieve great things, do little things and pile them one on top of another, until you reach the stars. 
The secret is to Start now. Do you have a friend that makes this same no taking action on his or her idea mistake? I showed you how to fix it, send them this post so you can show them how to fix it.
