Ok, it’s a ridiculous picture, but it has a serious point.
Yesterday’s post described how taking a ‘decision’ means we cut away all the options except one. We free ourselves to move forward. We de-cide.
This picture contains an extract from Samuel Beckett’s play Waiting for Godot:
Vladimir: Well? Shall we go?
Estragon: Yes, let’s go.
They do not move.
Like the story of the four frogs, it shows that “making a decision” changes nothing… until action is taken.
It is only when action takes place that a decision has truly been made.
Each chapter of Inner Leadership not only describes what needs to be done and why, but also provides the tools and frameworks that enable you to take action to apply the learning, in ways that work for you.
Of course, it’s entirely up to you whether you use them.
