BLOGYou Don’t Start a Bonfire, You Light a Spark

What starts you on your path – and what prevents you from taking that first step?

While there are many contributing factors, consider this concept: you don’t start a bonfire; you light a spark. Those who are so focused on lighting the bonfire often give up. The enormity of the big picture prevents us from knowing where (or how) to start. And doing nothing takes less effort than doing something.

What are the sparks?

  • Identifying the one or two baby steps, to help you get going.
  • Finding the low hanging fruit – those tasks that are easy to do, and yield great benefit
  • Motivating others to buy in to your project
  • Delegating an early task to someone who is keen to run with it.


Lighting a spark is really only the first step, but where do you want to light it in the first place?  Is it in your current role? On the home front? Education and training? Health? Or somewhere else?  Before the day is out, do something about it.
