Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.


Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken was the inpiration behind my Making Ideas Work session.  What is the road you have taken?  While the tendency to generate ideas is rather natural, the path to making them happen is tumultous.  When was the last time you fought to create your ideas or work?

Have you taken a calcutaed risk lately?  Success comes from taking calculated risks and either achieving your goals or learning from setbacks. Risk-taking indicates that you have confidence in your ability to succeed but also accept the possibility of failure because mistakes are a fact of life. Even if you fail, risks can often be considered a “success” if you learn from the experience and resolve to do better the next time.

Coming up with an idea is not a risk -- actually making an idea it happen is. In the end, the only people who fail are those who do not try.  I challenge you to try!

 

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
