A friend of mine has great ideas, but for many years didn’t have much success with those ideas. People were always saying, “I don’t see how your ideas don’t work out. You have such great ideas.”
My friend’s response was always, “Ideas have never been my problem.”
My friend was not too great at following through. He had good intentions, he tried hard, but somehow once the excitement of a new project wore off, he couldn’t seem to keep going.
Once my friend mastered follow-through, his life took off in directions he could never have imagined.
