Even if we don’t like it, results arrive from actions, not wishes. Certainly, planning and preparation have their parts in any successful endeavour, yet efforts bring accomplishments.
It can be argued we need to base eventual actions on wishes. And surely those felt in the heart will have particular significance to us. Few would deny this observation. But we still need to add input into the mix to reach goals so, yes, results arrive from actions, not wishes.
Looking at the issue from a different perspective, one related to the idea of collaboration, things begin to take on a new dimension. Within any workgroup or team, it is essential each person is not only clear about his or her role but also understands what is expected in terms of individual undertakings.
General indications or vague instructions are, at best, going to slow down the march toward shared objectives.
Clear communication coupled with a precise division of responsibilities goes a long way in assisting all to give their best in the manner most appropriate to bring about success. Once again, results arrive from results, not wishes.
