It was 7:00 AM. I was having coffee with Roger, one of my best friends in my law firm. We liked to get together to brainstorm ideas. I was really excited and was sharing several ideas. All of a sudden, Roger looked at me and said:
You have many great ideas, but I have a question for you. What is the one most important thing you can do right now?
At first I was taken aback by the question. After I got over my disappointment, I realized that through his question he was telling me that my ideas were not all equally valuable and that instead of coming up with new ideas, I needed to work on the most important one I had already identified.
So, if you want to break through, I ask you:
What is the one most important thing you can do now?
Then to quote the famous Nike commercial:
Just Do It!
