I was thinking about a meeting I had recently and how fired up I got about ideas, systems and processes. I love that stuff. Thinking about how things work together to form a kick arse whole.
Then the work.
That’s where it all goes pear shaped for me. That’s the boring stuff. The stuff that takes ages to do – when I don’t want to do it that is – but it’s the vital stuff. It’s the stuff that gets things moving. It’s the stuff people sign off on that gives them a clear idea of what they are paying for and taking responsibility for.
These days I have a great team to do a lot of that for me. But there is still a lot of stuff I have to do myself. That stuff can be a downer for me. I want the big hit of the ideas and the energy that comes from them. Maybe not every day. But several times a week.
So, ideas are my drug of choice. What’s yours?
