Take Action!

Last night I went for a walk. 15 minutes from my house, it began to rain. I had two choices.

#1. Run to my house. Of course, that would be risky as I am out of shape, could be messy.

#2. Walk back to my house. But then I would be soaked from the rain, and that wouldn’t be healthy either.

While I was standing in the rain thinking about which choice made more sense, it occurred to me that people spend far too much time thinking and not enough time taking action.

I had a flashback to 25 years ago.

A guy named Barry and I started to talk about writing a book.

I planned how I would start to write a chapter a week.  Barry started writing.

As I created my goal board, visualising my first book, Barry was taking action.

At the end of three months, I was still planning, Barry was taking more action, and finished his book.

I learnt a valuable lesson- Take Action.

Now Whenever I have a project to complete, I remember the Barry story – Take action.
