Take it on

To make things happen takes ideas and will.

Either one isn’t enough: untended ideas flat-line and die; will alone is potential energy going nowhere.

With only one, you can hope for the best. Maybe someone else with more persuasive powers or authority or motivation might make things better. Maybe.

With both  … you can cajole and encourage, incentivise, nudge, push between the shoulder blades, do it yourself, build a team, co-opt, never rest, make an argument, engender support, win friends and influence, climb hills and push on through.

To make something happen – first the idea, then take it on.

Skippy Strategy: Ideas are free and effortless, the rarer commodity is people who’ll take things on and make them happen. One plus one equals everything that ever happened.
