Make it happen, or someone else will

Ten years ago, my husband and I had an idea. Our idea was ahead of its time. We mapped out our strategy and spent a ton of time working on it. But then we ran into road blocks, and we started to feel apprehensive about the project. So we let it go. A few years later, we realized that the idea was actually a pretty cool one. Such a cool idea, in fact, that a ton of other people started doing the same exact thing we had planned to do.

I often find myself wishing we hadn’t given up.

Today, I’m in a similar position. I have a list of ideas … projects I could start up on my own with essentially no cost (aside from my own time). I think about them a lot, but my enthusiasm ebbs and flows. This is a problem, because it keeps me from starting said projects. And if I never start them, they will never come to fruition … until someone else makes it happen, that is.
