Moving from thinking to doing

Moving from thinking to doing

It's easier to spend time picturing our goal or what a project is going to be like than to actually do the project. We tend to value the thinking mindset more than the doing mindset.

Results come to those who act. Just being willing to sit down and apply yourself, however tiny, will give you greater returns.

Inaction will cost you

Don't over-plan and under-act. Thinking and planning are vital to your success, but action is even more important.

You can't get real progress if you don't take action. When you read a book or article on taking action, immediately apply something from it, even if it is small.

Limit your planning time and take action

Committing to action means you never stop pushing.

Think of something you can do right now to take even the smallest step towards achieving your most important goal. The answer should be something simple that can be done in the next 30 minutes. Then act on it immediately. Once you commit to getting started, momentum will carry you.
