Potential has a due date. Potential like a spin-off or other organization granted investments to get an idea, an invention ready for sale. Or individual potential like the ambition to develop a new technique, to enter management board level or to become an expert in your field.
Which date approaches when people start to notice themselves getting slightly irritated about ‘none progression’. Irritated about their ‘no progress’, the ‘no progress’ of individual team members, the team or all.
Easily and often unconsciously resulting in a growing indifference towards the matter and the people it concerns.
Repetitive stories, ‘excuses’ you’ve heard over and over again, in all kinds of varieties, from all angles, feel like an energy drain today.
And your initial ‘like’ and enthusiasm slowly transforms into ‘dislike’ and aversion.
Go down the last path or decide to take action aligned with what you want.
Because a conscious decision, based on what you really want reveals practical, do-able actions forward you can safely take immediately.
Which, by taking action, gets you in action modus, more and more.
Which actions on their turn help you to make accurate, fast decisions at ease. In fact, taking (tiny) conscious actions on a daily basis gets you in decision mode.
Accounting for generating results on an ongoing basis and for further development(s) and continuous improvement as you move on.
A conscious decision is the entrance to live your potential, growing and enjoying your career and organization. Together with colleagues, manager(s) and (internal) clients.
There’s a way to transform potential into power: figure out what it is you do want and decide to get it.
Can you decide to live your potential?
A script to transform potential into power:
#1 What triggers your impatience? What is it that you really want?
#2 Decide upon your goal(s). For what you really want. Decide to move forward.
#3 Take action and action and action and action. Aligned with what you want. No matter what (shit) you might think could happen. In practice, most probably none of it will happen. Other things happen, instead. Things you couldn’t have ever imagined upfront. Great things and yes, also tough, unintended, things. However, due to the action modus you’re operating in, you are much more likely to notice trouble when it’s still small. And by consistently deciding upon content, which you do when taking actions, you know better what’s exactly going on, what’s at stake and how to best deal with the problems you encounter.
For all of the above, you only get to really understand how it works, when you consciously decide for what you want and take aligned action accordingly.
You can transform a potential due date into a realization date with one conscious decision!
