Have you ever had a really great idea, something you just knew you should do, yet somehow you did not act on it? Suzzan Mazza asked great and very personal question in her blog post on RandomActsOf Leadership.com. The truth is: yes, even leaders sometimes feel stuck. But they don’t let the feeling last. Susan, rather adequately, placed this post under the topic Personal leadership. Because, how would we ever lead others if we cannot lead ourselves towards our goals?
Susan reminds us of the Law of Motion that states: “An object in motion stays in motion, and an object at rest stays at rest unless acted upon by an outside force.” She says that this law can also be applied to any venture and it can actually help you when you feel stuck, if you follow seven simple steps:
- Narrow your focus to one specific goal
- Write down first 5 ideas how to achieve that goal
- Choose one of these ideas and set a date BY WHEN you will have completed implementing it
- List first three things you need to do to execute the idea
- Take a clean sheet of paper and write your big goal (from step 1), one idea that will support you in achieving it (step 3) and three things needed to execute that idea (step 4).
- Start now with the first step!
As you can see, Susan’s blog post is helping us narrow our focus, and do what all leaders do: act.
