Do you have a great idea? An idea that will either save money for your firm or drive revenue? Aka bring value? An idea that will advance your career or expand your role, or even value to your department and organization? Are you waiting for management to give you the green light and go ahead to get started?

Don’t! If you think you have an idea that can bring value to your department or organization just do it.

START! Grab 1 or 2 or 3 other colleagues and get started. Grab coffee. Get a whiteboard. Discuss your ideas. Take action. Any action. The key to getting from now the next is starting.

Want some inspiration? This is guaranteed to get you going. Derek Sivers: How to start a movement: http://go.ted.com/-O_JCQ
