Just add water…

Sometimes, at work and in our personal life, we “circle the pool” so many times that people begin to take notice of what we AREN’T doing, and that can be a problem.

It’s one thing to be a good steward and do our due diligence, whether it be managing a budget or project at work, or making a big decision in our personal life.

It’s quite another thing to let our fears get in the way of taking action. And, when we don’t take action, we miss the opportunity to learn from mistakes. A knowledge base cannot be built through planning alone.

Plan, but don’t forget to plan to take action and also plan to make mistakes along the way. At the end of the day, if you want to learn to swim, you have to get in the water.
