I recall being in early teens, throwing food for crows. It starts with a crow, who sees it first and then it calls others, and then the whole group waits till the most hungry one jump on the food. In next moments you see every one is on the food.
The same nature I have noticed in other species, as if I’m not on my computer, I’m most probably on National Georaphic or any other wild life TV. I want to state, I have observed it quite often.
Now on the human side, it is the same. We see in every field, no matter if it is fashion industry, book publishing, or communication or any other, we are in wait of the next new. We’re bored with the current one and eagerly waiting new one to come in so we shall join it too (like everyone else).
It is in our nature to avoid being the first one to do something, both good and bad. So it is okay not to be the first one in family who blogs regularly, it is okay not to be the first one to deliver a great business experience in your industry. It is okay not to be the first leader in your community. It is okay not to be the first one to do something meaningful. Because we are not that great and it is the duty of great people to do this and that.
Often we wait until we are too hungry, or in other words get pushed by circumstances to take actions. I also see many people give the reason of less prepared to start something. But we have discussed earlier, and found it clearly that, we are seeking for leaders, not perfect.
Here is video, which conveys the same message. It might help you to better understand what I want to say. It all might help you to be the first one to do… to do that… Yes you know what you need to do.
