Actuate | Thought Into Action

“On-time, On Budget, Goals Delivered!”

“if Your life were a magazine what would be the title?”

Question of the Day

I came up with Actuate, which, per M-W.com, means:

 (1) To move into mechanical action or motion –

(2) to move to action

This describes my life to a “T.” Some people act, some react, some create but growing up, I was that kid in the group who came up with the wild ideas, put them into motion, and moved others to action.

I learned early on, as an only child (my only brother was born more than a decade later), that I was responsible for my own fun – and if I wanted to have some, it was up to me to make it happen.

Fortunately, or unfortunately for those, friends and foes alike, who were sucked up in my vortex, would soon realize that sometimes those “great ideas” could result in disasters.  Not often, though.  And no one lost life, an eye or anything; just a bit of singed hair, hurt feelings, or maybe or a broken leg or two.

But being in my orbit isn’t all bad; I tend to see the possibilities and potential in others and spur them into action too.  True, people aren’t projects but helping others, including my three daughters, see their individual greatness has been the joy in my life.  

Check out my portfolio and blog, the Content Farm, where I do my best to communicate some of those leadership stories, hits, misses, and bona fide successes.

That is if I can figure out how to do it without breaching anyone’s confidence.    ~Mel
