We all have good ideas.
And we should share them and hope our teammates elevate them into something remarkable.
When we have an idea but don’t act upon it, at best it’s just a good intention.
Some people think generous sharing can help a relationship, but vision without action creates disappointment in those we've excited with a new idea.
Someone who frequently offers ideas and rarely acts is communicating, “I have the ideas, you need to do the work.”
Good intentions only count when accompanied by good effort.
Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.
- Peter Drucker
When we offer a new thought that is received enthusiastically, the actions of each team member should immediately be entered into some form of a shared task document.
Dreams are turned into action when we know who will do what by when, including the commitments of the leader who just motivated the team.
Leaders walk the talk.
