Yesterday, after crossing a critical halfway mark, I wrote about how easy it is to start something, but how challenging it is to finish it.
I struggle with this on a daily basis as I find myself constantly enthused by new ideas.
Ideas are a dime a dozen. But seeing those ideas to fruition? That is hard. Really hard. This is because execution requires surmounting lots of obstacles. Swarms of them. Including nonstop distractions that present themselves as enticing ideas.
As I stated in yesterday’s blog post, “many initiate, only some perpetuate, but very few ever effectuate.”
Imagination is all that is needed for initiation.
Perpetuation, on the other hand, takes commitment and focus.
But effectuation demands fortitude – some may even say, stoicism.
As I endeavor to master all three, I am reminded that I, myself, am merely a work in progress.
