Has this ever happened to you?
You think of a really great idea. Seriously. The idea is so brilliant you can’t wait to write it down and get started.
Then one of the following probably happens:
- You have an urge for a bowl of ice cream or a bag of potato chips so you run to the store and get some.
- You decide now is the time to pick a fight with your spouse. Or kids. Or mother.
- You realize you forgot to pay an important bill that’s due to tomorrow.
I could go on but you get the idea.
These shots of inspiration could be the idea that sent your social business or community project to the top. Or maybe it would have cover marketing expenses. Or the idea could have sent your life in a whole new direction. I call this stuffing down your social purpose vision. We tend to fill up our minds and our available time with filler tasks and empty pleasures. It’s like your mind is saying “I’m not ready so there must be something more important that needs to be done.” To put it another way:
Procrastination is the enemy to personal greatness.
Make a pact with yourself to stop this pattern. Your community needs your vision and your innovations.
