Ambition is not sufficient

As we start the 2nd Quarter, it's a good time to assess how Q1 went and what we look forward to in the months to come. In other words, let's assess our "ambition."

We are encouraged to be ambitious and there is really nothing wrong with that. However, looking at the meaning of the word "Ambition" we see us why, as good as it is, ambition is not sufficient.

Ambition is a "A strong desire to do or to achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work."*

We shouldn't just desire to achieve something, we must be determined to do something about our desire.

Ambition without action is a "wasted dream."

Ambition is not what a man would do,
but what a man does, for ambition without action is fantasy. ~ Bryant H. McGill

Take action!
