Waiting to be Told What to Do

There are a number of people that want to be their own boss. They want to make decisions. They want to control their time and space. They want to work on things in which they are passionate. All of these things can make us feel alive and most human. 

I've noticed lately though that some of these same folks that crave that autonomy are standing around waiting to be told what to do. They are waiting for direction. They are waiting not to make a mistake. They are waiting in a time when we don't have time to wait. 

How can we create a culture that empowers individuals to seek out, explore, create, design, and risk into solution making? Rarely do ideas generated with missional purpose get splattered on the wall for disposal. 

We could all steal a few moments of our days to be our own boss and stop waiting to be told what to do.
