WORDS OF WISDOM
Are you keeping great ideas or something else to yourself because you’re not ready yet, it’s not perfect or you’re afraid of how it will be received?
I’m always listening to what you say. As a coach and workshop facilitator communication is very important and listening ranks high on the list of being a great communicator.
For years and for some reason more so since lockdown (enforced creativity time I imagine) I’ve been listening to people coming up with great ideas but then talking themselves out of it by saying “I don’t think now is the right time”.
The thing about an idea is that it’s up for the taking. If you don’t claim it someone else will, maybe not immediately but at some point.
Great ideas can be unique or they can be more commonplace.
Those who make the effort or are brave enough to claim the idea will be the ones who receive the credit, whatever that looks like.
Whether it’s an idea to write something, for improving a process at work or one you have for creating a social enterprise, the world needs your ideas and input.
Please find a way to deliver your idea, project or thoughts, it is the right time.
To use the well known quote “If not now when?”
So, if you are sitting on a great idea and fearful of delivering it for whatever reason, here are some pointers for you:
Are you overthinking it?
It’s nearly here, 2020
Yes we have Christmas coming and then the New Year’s festivities....what next?
Whilst I’m not a fan of wishing my life away I am a fan of planning, preparing to the best of my ability and then letting go.
Why not get a handle on your 2020 by starting with a plan.
Create it now and enjoy the holiday season knowing you have your starter kit for 2020 in progress.
How effective are your New Year’s Resolutions?
‘New Year’s Resolutions’ or steadfast goals, which do you prefer?
Generally ‘New Year’s Resolutions’ are often made on a whim, which fades with the sun somewhere between the 3rd & 10th January as you say to yourself ‘I’ll continue with being resolute, tomorrow, next week or next year.’
Turning your ideas, dreams, wishes or aspirations into specific goals doesn’t come with the same pressures as opting for ‘New Year’s Resolutions’.
Goal setting and planning when done in your own time provides you with greater options, space and resources to achieve them.
I'm older and wiser than I look. After many years working in the corporate world I decided to branch out on my own.......Brave eh?
