The problem with every good idea is that it eventually degenerates into a four-letter word…WORK. (Tom Julien, author)

The world is full of people with ideas. We all have brainstorms that we think could really revolutionize society if we could just bring them to reality. There’s the rub. Ideas don’t just morph into actuality. Good ones require hard thinking, careful strategizing, and most often deep resources. Julien sums up the reason that many ideas don’t mature; they require work.

Work hard and become a leader. . . . Work brings profit. . . . Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity. (Proverbs 12:24; 14:23; 21:5)
