Good Monday Morning, One of my clients shared with me that 10 years ago he thought about combining water and vitamens as a great way of bringing together two key needs. Have you ever had an idea, sat on it and see that product or service take-off in the marketplace at a later date? This weeks podcast is with Gene Hayden the author of The Follow-Through Factor – Getting From Doubt to Done. Gene identified 15 key reasons why we struggle with taking action and some practical ways to deal with these challenges. The top 3 reasons why people drop their ideas; 1. Loss of Passion 2. Not enough money 3. No time All of us at time, lack desire, money and time with the things we are passionate about. Are those challenges an excuse or have you not come up with a creative way to resolve those issues. Gene shared “Following-through is the only thing that separates dreamers from people that accomplish great things”. Long story short, my client didn’t take action on this idea, but somebody else did. If you walk into any store you will see many choices of vitamin water, it was a billion dollar idea. The world is full of great ideas, what’s yours? More importantly, what are you doing with it?
