From dreaming to doing

“In every department of life [beginning] marks the transition from dreaming aspiration to laborious doing.”

CS lewis wrote this in The Screwtape Letters and it rings so true. Everything looks and sounds good on a whiteboard. But once the implementation phase begins, you never know what will happen.

To me, the ideas and the dreaming is the easy part. I could do that all day. But, if that’s all I ever did, I would never make any progress or have any impact. The challenge of any project is pairing the dreaming with the doing. That’s the sweet spot where change happens.
