Exactly one week ago today, I arrived home from VOICE 2007. My head was spinning with information, impressions, emotions and thoughts. If you were there, you know exactly what I’m saying. If you weren’t, but you’ve attended some other sort of highly emotional, fully packed seminar, convention or even family reunion, you have a very good idea of what I’m saying, too.
In any case, one of the thoughts uppermost in my mind was that all of this fabulous information and experience would end up being a gigantic waste if I didn’t find some way to begin putting into practice what I learned. Thus, I think it was no coincidence at all that Roy H. Williams would chose to send this message as his Monday Morning Memo the following day. Here’s one of his opening observations…
We often receive instruction and agree, “I see what you’re saying,” but seldom do we actually do the thing we learned.
It’s the doing that’s the part that keeps the flame burning long after the experience has begun to fade.
