I’ve spent the past few months describing the key elements of doing the impossible. All of the work, so far, has been internal. Once you identify the problem, I've described the importance of turning inward to identify your passion, your inclination, and talent. To understand exactly how you can contribute to a solution. And I've shown you a few techniques to help improve your knowledge and skills.
All of that self-assessment and growth takes energy and time and work if you’re going to do it right. And it is necessary and meaningful and the only way to truly succeed in solving your problem. And it also isn’t enough.
Perfect self-awareness and infinite knowledge mean nothing until they are turned into energetic action. You must do something! And that is when the real work begins. Yes, it's true: personal growth isn’t easy. But it is easier than confronting the world.
And that is what you must do next.
Passion, inclination, and skill are necessary ingredients for doing the impossible. But they aren't sufficient. You also must bring focus, energy, and work-ethic. You must translate your passion into progress. You must convince the world there is a better way of doing things. You must assemble a team and lead it to victory. All while preserving your sanity and health. And that’s not going to be easy.
But it will be worth it.
