Carrying Out Plans

When we get an idea, there is generally an initial euphoria that accompanies it. This emotion is a great kick starter that enables us to launch out in hot pursuit of our new founded goal to make our ideas a reality. Along the way, we begin to find that our passion wanes as we grind our plans out and sometimes it's not even the hard work the demotivates us, it can be sheer boredom. I'm an idea guy, so I know what it feels like to have a bunch of great concepts floating around in my head at one time. Sometimes it can be very difficult to decipher which ideas to pursue and which ones to drop (especially after I have begun to go after them). I think it is important to stick with our core competencies as it relates to what we give most of our energy to. This does not suggest that we should never venture into unchartered territory. It does mean that it is wise to stay anchored in the path, passions, and ventures that we have consistently gravitated to over the longest period of time. We can be reinvigorated while the arduous process of working our plans is in effect because our consistency shows results if we pay closer attention to them. There is something exciting about finding the solution to a problem, in this case it is figuring out the solution on how to turn our ideas (through working a plan) into something tangible.
