Power Play: Build the train tracks before there’s even a train

Power Play: Build the train tracks before there’s even a train

There’s a story I love. The train tracks between Vienna and Venice were built before there was even a train. Beautiful, right?

Power Players have a way of taking leaps of faith that (in the end) prove justified. Whether it’s a feel for what comes next or a belief that progress has to happen, they boldly build the things that need to be built.

Most of us want all the evidence to be in before we make a decision. We want certainty. We dream little or not at all.

Power Players are the exact opposite. They see a bright future and they put the pieces in place to make that future happen.

The next time you have a chance to build the train tracks before there is even a train, grab it with both hands. These are the occasions that make good people into great ones.

Dream the ending and then make it happen.
