I love to learn but I’ve discovered there’s a real nuisance that accompanies acquiring new insights. Think about the trouble it causes. When you read a book, listen to a podcast or attend a conference you’re exposed to other people’s experiences and success. When you’re exposed to other people’s experiences and success it stirs new ways of thinking. When you’re stirred to new ways of thinking it generates new ideas in your mind. When new ideas are generated in your mind it requires time to sit, think and develop them. When you sit, think and develop new ideas you start dreaming about new possibilities. When you dream of new possibilities you develop specific goals. When you develop specific goals you end up developing next steps. When you develop next steps it motivates you internally to take action. When you take action things around you begin to change for the better. When things around you begin to change for the better other people get excited about what you’re doing. When other people get excited about what you’re doing they want to join in the effort. When others want to join the effort your team begins to grow. When your team begins to grow change happens at a rapid pace. When change happens at a rapid pace you begin to change the world.
Wow, that’s a lot of trouble from just one new little insight.
