Working for Inspiration

Tuesday August 12, 2014 #652

“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.”

~Pablo Picasso

652

To thrive in today’s increasingly complex and fast-paced world, creativity and innovation become foundational competencies.  To develop these and maximize your potential, you must be actively working on learning and applying your knowledge daily.  Learning isn’t enough.  Inspiration doesn’t come readily by standing still.  Application, execution, and then reflection must occur regularly.  As you do so, and if you keep all your senses open, inspiration will strike.  Get going and get inspired!

Making Dreams Come True

Tuesday June 3, 2014 #632

“Vision without execution is hallucination!” ~Thomas Jefferson

632

Success requires a clear and inspiring vision of what success will look and feel like when it is achieved, to both inspire us and to ensure our actions are moving us where we want to go.  Success also requires the ability to develop and execute the action plan that will move us forward, overcome obstacles, and deliver the desired results.  This takes focus, courage, and persistence.  Dream, oh yes, dream!  But be sure to then focus on execution, or your dreams will be but hallucinations.

The power of an inspirational dream

Thursday December 6, 2012 #478

 

“Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming after all is a form of planning.”

 

~Gloria Steinem

 

Your role as leader of people, or even as the leader of your own life, is to provide a consistent vision of a desired future state.  A future with hope, passion, and possibility.  Often, belief in that vision requires a leap of imagination – a dream of what could be if only we learn, develop, and strive with perseverance.  Never forget the power of an inspirational dream.  Pragmatism is required for execution.  But the dream is necessary to fuel the inspired enthusiasm to get you through the various obstacles to come.
