The Ides of March was a festive day dedicated to the god Mars and a military parade was usually held. In modern times, the term Ides of March is best known as the date that Julius Caesar was killed in 709 AUC or 44 B.C. Julius Caesar was stabbed to death in the Roman Senate led by Marcus Junius Brutus, Gaius Cassius Longinus and 60 other co-conspirators. (Wikipedia).
For us in the 21st century, the Ides of March is a rally cry to get on with it, despite the dreary economy that continues to linger. From my point of view, our economic recovery is hinged on making things happen now, rather than waiting for an email with a notice about how things rebounded last quarter.
Entrepreneurship is all about making things better, whether you work in a start up or a large organization. If you reduce entrepreneurship to one attribute or trait it, is creativity. Consider creativity as applied imaginatinon —- a bright idea that was acted upon.
So, let’s get on with it.
