Take the Leap (et. al.)
As I reflect again on last week's post called "No Back Door," I'm reminded of a conversation from last night's master mind group. In business maybe it's a responsible thing to remember the big goal - keep your eye on the prize, etc. but in order to do that, you need to have some contingency plans in case unforeseen things come up. Is this the same as having a back door or is there some sense of accountability to make sure all the bases are covered?
So that got me thinking about all the cliches and sayings we have to "go for it." Here are some ... can you think of others?
"You'll never steal second base with one foot on first."
"Lead off ... steal the base and don't look back."
"Seal up that back door once and for all."
"Take the leap - the net will appear."
"Do or not do - there is no try."
"Put your money where your mouth is."
"Walk your talk."
"Straighten up and fly right."
"Just Do It."
