ChatterBlasters

"Talking about it" is a necessary step, but it is best a very brief one.

Endless chatter around an idea, an initiative, a plan almost always foretells its inevitable circling of the drain.  

If the idea/initiative/project meets the following tests, then go for it:

  • Does it fit our big, bold goals?
  • Is it good for people (both inside and outside our organization)?
  • Is it good for the planet (ecologically speaking)?
  • Will the world be a better place if we can pull it off?

If it's truly risky, then make it a pilot project.  Just get off the starting line.

But PLEASE, get past the chatter and get to the doing -- and the failing and the fixing and the re-doing and...

The most impactful leaders I know are master chatter blasters.
