African Proverb: To circumcise a leopard is not the thing. The thing is who will hold him down?
A variation of this Proverb says, "Preparing food for the leopard is easy but who will go and feed him?" Meaning: This proverb reminds me of one of Aesop's fables in which the mice held a general meeting to outwit the cat (their common enemy). At the meeting, there were many wonderful proposals. In fact, one mouse suggested that they put a bell around the cat's neck to signal them whenever the cat was approaching so they could all escape. This suggestion was admired and applauded by almost all the mice until an old mouse got up and said, "That is a very great idea, but who will bell the cat?" The mice looked at one another in silence. Then the old mouse said, "it is easy to propose big ideas. The difficulty lies in carrying them out." Some of us are good at making suggestions but never want to take any responsibility. Suffice to say that the world has enough talkers - It needs doers.
It has enough great thoughts - It needs great actors.
It has enough great theories- It needs practical steps
