Watch What You Start

Many people are all bent out of shape over their huge array of unfinished projects.

That is an issue, no doubt, but equally important is to watch what you start because you may fall into a rabbit hole so deep, you will not come up for air for years at a time.

A huge idea requires a large commitment of time. Excuses pop into the mind like jack rabbits. For instance:

None of us know how much time we’ve got. How do I know I’ll get a chance to finish this?

There are so many other ideas vying for my attention.

Am I up to this? Do I have what it takes?

Do I want to uncover and expose what this idea will require me to?

If you are trembling on the brink of a Grand Canyon sized idea, don’t pull back.

You have been given this concept, not because you are fully ready and able to do it, but because you will grow into it, expand because of it.

You will end up offering yourself a gift, as much as you will those in the world who are able to witness it.

When An Idea Take Hold

Good ideas are common – what’s uncommon are people who’ll work hard enough to bring them about.
………..~ Ashleigh Brilliant

Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one’s ideas, to take a calculated risk – and to act.
………..~ Andre Malraux

A mind that is stretched to a new idea never returns to its original dimension.
………..~ Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).
