Hello. Pressure is one of the best motivators. As one of my buddies says, "If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would ever get done." Some people thrive in these situations and others fail miserably. I think it's hard to be successful without a certain amount of planning. However, I do find being pushed into the fire a good way to glow! Sometimes without a little urgency, good ideas are lost in the fear of the unknown.
I have jumped into the fire many times. I've also been burned. But generally things work out. I think people should follow their dreams. Over the years I've listened to many people talk about great ideas and plans, only to watch them drift away on a raft of fear. Human nature keeps us from taking risks. Taking a risk makes you feel alive! It is boring to live in the security of mediocrity. I think we should all make at least one leap of faith in our lives. Fill your life with some fear, some promise, some hope. Nothing big will ever happen if we don't put ourselves in a position to be rewarded.
I'm ready to leap...I'm bored.
