Many people have ideas for their own personal growth and for new ways to accomplish more at their work. Many ideas never come to fruition because it takes these three characteristics to make an idea happen. 1. Passion. No great idea ever happened without dedicated passion. 2. The idea must be made a priority of the originator. And they must make it a company priority. The company must then buy in to the idea. That will put more passion behind it in order to fuel its success. 3. Most ideas never happen because the person or company doesn't persevere. Making an idea happen is not an event, but rather a process. Larry Jacobson had an idea when he was 13 years old that he would sail around the world. It took him 33 years of passion, prioritizing, and perseverance to make that dream come true. And it took an enormous amount of all three of these traits to spend six years sailing his own boat all the way around the world. This as an area in which Larry Jacobson is indeed an expert. From 30 to 50 minutes, the stories, pictures, and tie-ins with the lives of the audience, this talk is a winner!
