OK right now, at the very moment I write this, I am completely lost. No, I didn’t lose my job. No, my wife did not leave me. No, no one died. But none the less I feel stuck and powerless. Why? well friends lets talk about that.
I had an idea. A great idea. One of those ideas that you think can change the world and if it were possible to do it, it really could change the world. But sometimes that isn’t possible. So what do you do? Well right now I’m feeling sorry for myself and” troubling deaf heaven with my bootless cries”. I feel like saying ” ah to hell with it” and storming off. But really that would be a cop-out wouldn’t it? It would also make me a hypocrite. Why a Hypocrite? Friends you ask some hard questions.
I’d be a hypocrite because I’m continually telling people not to give up, to follow their passion and not the pay cheque and if I just gave up now then all i would be is a straw man ” full of sound and fury signifying nothing”.
So friends all I can do is to find another way. No one said that this idea of mine would be simple or easy and just because an idea is a great idea doesn’t mean it’s a workable idea. My idea will just have to take a lot longer to figure out if it’s workable.
Now the really hard work begins and I’m o.k. with that. I’m not afraid of a little hard work. Just wish that dreams and ideas didn’t take so much time and so much work to accomplish.
Thanks for listening friends.
I’m here. Let’s push through and make it happen. You’ve helped me immensely. Tell me where I can get my hands dirty.
Let’s do this.
you can help by buying me a pony. 🙂 I kid, I joke
Ain’t that the truth. Our dreams and ideas are all so simple on paper. The difference between you and most people though, Sean, is that your ideas are often fundamentally good. I’m certain that whatever you’re trying to make happen is worth making happen so keep at ‘er! As the wise @sqedmonton often says, “I’m a genius!”. Don’t forget it!
Thanks Laura – nice of you too say that
