“Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.” ~ Peter F. Drucker
by Chris Banescu –
Everyone has good ideas. Some folks even have great ideas! But only a few have the strength, determination, and discipline to transform those ideas into reality.
As Peter Drucker reminds us, hard work and perseverance are critical to achieving success in business and in life. You must be ready and willing to do the work each and every day. All the brainstorming, daydreaming, and planning in the world will not get you there.
Good intentions alone are never enough to bring about the results you desire. As the sage saying goes, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. You must take action and act to transform your ideas and plans into real work and concrete results. The journey of a thousand miles requires us to take the first step; and then continue to take the necessary steps towards our goal(s).
Do the work!
