Just tell me what to do
When the going gets tough, the tough get…
When the going gets tough, just give me the instruction manual. Or the magic pill. Or the Ronco ® steak knives.
Come on… someone else HAS to have the answer for me.
Eavesdrop on the next conversation behind you at the coffee shop, over the top of your cubicle, or while waiting in line at the supermarket. It’s a deafening sound… brilliant people looking to take the easy way out of stagnant sales growth, faulty marketing, or belligerent co-workers.
Worse yet, if they don’t find the easy way, they wait. Wait until there’s more time. Wait until there’s more money. Wait until Jim Collins comes out with a new book.
This is so much easier than doing the hard work of confronting who we’re really Being in the face of our unfilled goals, objectives and dreams.
For just one day, stop demanding someone else tell you what to do and take the initiative yourself.
Artistry is at the doorstep of the possibility. Detailed instruction is at the doorstep of frustration, anger and resignation.
