What a way to kick off a new blog than by referencing a fellow blogger! Anyway, here goes…
Seth Godin wrote earlier this week about “initiators” – those of us who make the decision “to lead, to poke, to initiate”. The idea being that’s it’s far simpler to react to things, rather than deciding to go somewhere & then go there. Seth concluded “initiative is taken, not given”. Whilst referencing Seth perhaps is not taking the initiative, I thought this too great a challenge not to share!
My mantra for 2011 is “let hope rise” – taking my dreams off the back-burner and placing them in the forefront of my thinking. Seth’s word would then suggest that for these dreams to become legitimate expectations I need to take the initiative. I need to not get hung up on reacting to stuff that’s happening, rather I need to set my direction and just get going. Less talk, more positive action.
Let’s look for opportunities – Let Hope Rise!
