“Dreams are not so different from deeds as some may think.
All the deeds of men are only dreams at first.
And in the end, their deeds dissolve into dreams.”

and
“If you will it, it is no dream;
and if you do not will it,
a dream it is and a dream it will remain.”


Theodor Herzl


Coaching Point: Are these two different interpretations on dreams? Or shades of the same, overlapping?

With his first quote the point, I think, dreams are part of the process, they bracket Now. All other than Now is a dream. Living fully in Now is one of our greatest challenges.

And the second, of will, speaks to action, to deeds, or the absence thereof. Without action nothing emerges into form. How many times have you heard someone say, upon seeing an outcome someone else created, “Oh, I thought of that long ago.” But they didn’t act.

So dreams are essential, before and after.

And action in Now is essential to convert dreams to reality.

How goes your dreaming? And your acting on the dreams?
