Got potential?

Photo ofcoffee mug with the word BEGIN on a wooden tableSo much possibility wrapped up in that one word: potential.

Maybe you – or one of your kids – got that dreaded note on a report card: “Not living up to their potential.” Ugh.

But here’s the thing about potential: it’s meaningless.

Without action, without the willingness to take risks and make mistakes, without the drive to learn and fumble and be awkward at times, potential simply isn’t relevant.

Potential is meaningless without action. Get going. Begin. Do something!Click To Tweet

Do you have people on your team with potential?

Do you have potential?

If so – DO SOMETHING.

Take a risk. Go out on a limb. Challenge yourself. Challenge your team. Explore a new idea.

Potential has no inherent value.

Until you begin to take action.
