Are you a firework? Does the idea or prospect of a new project or assignment light you up?
Now ask yourself…how often do you complete your new projects or assignments?
As individuals we tend to be fireworks. We get involved in a project, assignment or season of life and initially we glow big, bright and beautiful. But then after days usher away we lose that initial excitement that got us to where we were in the beginning. Now we are no longer that beautifully celebrated burst of color and light but the blackened, burned empty shell of our former selves.
I am a firework! I am horrible with
procrastination follow through. When I am given a new project or assignment, I’m rip, raring and ready to go. But then the initial excitement wears off and (unfortunately) so does my interest. I’m just like that firework that bursts in the sky, light and beautiful at the start and then quickly fizzles out!
My challenge to you today is to identify if you are a firework! If you are a firework I challenge you to determine a couple of ways in which you can break the cycle of being a firework and be a blazing fire.
