A Challenge For The Year Ahead

Let me ask you a direct question: Isn’t it time to move your plans into action this year?

Think about all the plans you made for 2008. Which of those produced results – and which of those are still just plans?

For those of you who haven’t moved on, do you really want to be in this exact same position at the beginning of 2010? How would that feel?

You might tell yourself that a year can seem like a long time. One thing I do know is that time passes quickly when we idle away the moments.

And we can’t blame it on our fast-paced culture either. Failure to move into action is not a modern problem.

“I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Being willing is not enough; we must do.”

– Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)

Listen to da Vinci. Information is not enough. Intent is not enough. There’s something fundamentally different about action which greatly outstrips mere knowledge or willingness.

Some of you might think that da Vinci sat around all day figuring things out. Far from it. He accomplished an immense amount in his lifetime.

So where is the problem and how do we solve it? How can you learn to move into action more of the time?
