“Take Action”

27th May 2024

After an industry event that I attended recently, one of the attendees asked the speaker for career guidance.

The speaker had just finished a 2+ hour talk in which he had conservatively shared 100 ideas and insights—yet here was the attendee, asking for more.

What the speaker told him was most interesting: “You don’t need more information; you need more action. Tomorrow, go act on one of the things you learned today. Start there and build.”

We live in a modern era where information is abundant—you can literally access the best information from the smartest minds on any topic at the touch of a button.

If information were sufficient, everyone would be rich, fit, and madly in love.

Most of us fall into a trap of thinking that more information equals more progress—in reality, the information is cheap and the action is expensive.

Instead of focusing on gathering information, ask yourself how you can take some tiny action with the information you already have.

Action is the foundational key to all success. Without knowledge action is useless and knowledge without action is futile. Thinking will not overcome fear but action will.

A dream becomes a goal when action is taken toward its achievement.

One powerful realization that I have had is that, Information is abundant, action is scarce and

‘Decisions are generally reversible, but inaction is not.’

Just remember these wonderful words, “You are what you do,

Not what you say you will do.”

Imperfect action is better than perfect inaction, take action today & stay blessed forever.
