Procrastination and delay will only breed doubt and anxiety…

“Audacity augments courage; hesitation, fear.”

Publilius Syrus

It is incredible how the simple step of taking action on something can provide courage and energy. It is equally fascinating to me that procrastination and delay can breed doubt and anxiety.

Delaying never provides the clarity you might hope for as you seek absolute clarity or “perfect” information.

So when it doubt, take action. Even if it isn’t perfect, the simple act that creates momentum can help you overcome a host of challenges.

Don’t be a tool…

“You can accomplish by kindness what you cannot by force.”

Publius Syrus

Reading this I am reminded of the old saying “you can a lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink.”

The ability to get things accomplished isn’t based on titles and roles. Real changes comes through effective leadership and this is based on the strength and quality of the relationships that are intentionally fostered and developed. Without carefully and genuinely taking the time to build a real connection with others, you will never have the influence and impact that is otherwise possible.

If you don’t do this, then direct force is the only tool at your disposal. Seems to me that having a toolbox with only one tool in it is a pretty dumb idea. You’ll end up frustrated, and so will your horse…

What did you learn from yesterday?

“Each day is the scholar of yesterday.”

Publilius Syrus

What did you learn yesterday that will make today a little bit better? What are you going to do with that information?

Once you have answered these two questions then what is stopping you from taking action?
