“Vision is your first creation of the future.” -Tobi Delli
“Dreamers only dream, but creators bring their dreams into reality.” -Robert Fritz
Most people, brands and organization are not creating the future. They are merely reacting to the past and present.
Most plans and strategies are created to circumnavigate problems that arise in the present moment.
They are reactive, not creative.
They are oriented to move away from something undesirable, rather that moving toward something that IS desireable.
“Creating is no problem – problem solving is not creating.” -Robert Fritz
“Without making the fundamental choice to be the predominant creative force in your life, no matter what you do to attempt to benefit yourself or enhace your life, you will merely be finding more sophisticated ways of responding to circumstance.” -Robert Fritz
Being in a reactive state is like an endless game of whack-a-mole.. Put out one fire, and two more ignite.
Instead of creating the future, we are often preoccupied with attempting to restore the past (ie: before the problem existed).
While that seems innocent enough, there’s one glaring problem: the problem-reaction orientation is going abolutely nowhere. Round and round we go.
How do we make real progress in our lives and businesses?
It all starts with desire.
