Bite-sized Inspiritment Day 13: Talk


So many dreams and ideas remain as something talked about (to yourself in your own mind or even verbalised to others) but don’t eventuate. At least, it’s true in my life. Talk can be the easy part. How do we move past the talk to the doing?

Now, I am the first to admit that not all of the ideas and dreams I have had should be acted on! I am certainly not advocating jumping in to action on a whim. Each idea can be filtered through some questions.

  • Does it fit with your “why” and your priorities in this season?
  • Do you have the resources- time, emotions, support etc- to take the next step?
  • Is this true to who you are or an idea that seems like a good idea because someone else is doing it?

The list could go on.

When we drill down to the core of an idea or dream and find the gold there, that is when it is time to take action. That action might seem tiny. The goal may seem far away. What can you be doing today to turn in that direction?
