We no longer need a few leaders to make all the decisions.
All the people get to do things. Got an idea? Go for it. And try, test, try again, test again, and refine until it works. Or it doesn’t.
No need for meetings. No need for permissions. No need for drama.
The future is now. This is happening RIGHT NOW. Things are getting done, and done well and excitingly.
Are you one of the ‘old timers’ and won’t let go of the past? Or are you one of those ‘new timers’ working in the here and now to make things happen?
It’s an easy concept. Just go do it. However, it’s not always easy to break away from what you know. I’m encouraging you to go give it a try. Take a small step. Try something. Remember, you don’t need anyone’s permission or for someone else to make a decision for you if it’s right or not.
Here’s three stories of people who are doing things. \
Akron, Iowa residents are talking about the empty buildings, the businesses for sale and spaces for businesses to share. They aren’t holding meetings, waiting on decisions, hoping the right person will find them. They are just telling everyone they know ‘we’ve got these possibilities and you want to be a part of it.’ And people are coming out of the woodwork to take advantage!
Kristen Simons in Belle Fourche, SD posted this on her Facebook page. Who on my Facebook list are artisans? Bakers, artists, woodworkers, painters, upcyclers, cooks, etc? I’d love to hear more about what you do – and if you aren’t one, would love recommendations of who I should connect with in this community. Imagine what she’s going to do with that information (and there were already lots of responses!)
Erin Criss, my friend who has had a home based business since 2004, made a simple decision. She’s no longer going to work with people she doesn’t like. She didn’t ask for permission. She didn’t cry about it. She just said “I’m doing it my way” and got to it. She’s already making a difference in her business helping people.
Don’t wait for someone to tell you it’s okay to do it. Just take that small step, and do it.
