Business from the inside out

When in Doubt, Take the Next Small Step

I made a mistake. I got ahead of myself. I temporarily forgot my purpose. I got caught up in someone else’s ideas and began ignoring my vision.

Perhaps it was a lack of self-confidence that began leading me down the path – I’d like to think it was a desire to collaborate, improve, share and help – whatever it was, along the way I stopped thinking that my voice mattered. I stopped considering what brought me joy and what felt ‘right’ and instead focused on what I thought I ‘should’ be doing. I am not infallible and I often go astray.

“You never learn by doing something right ‘cause you already know how to do it. You only learn from making mistakes and correcting them.” – Russell Ackoff

I am now back to square one, trying to come up with ideas of how I (and others) can help spread the innerpreneur message and create value for our community.

The next small step I want to take is to create a forum here, where innerpreneurs can connect and share ideas, get advice and plan in-person meet-ups.

I’m surrounded by self-doubt, but inspired by passion. Maybe it’ll work and maybe it won’t. Either way, I’ll learn from it.
