“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing. ” ―Walt Disney Company
In The One Success Habit (You Can’t Do Without), I stress a vital piece of reality…Action’s the Thing. The fact is that nothing happens until something moves (see Einstein). I’m a fan of planning and what I like to call imagination work, but it doesn’t change the fact that when you tweet you get more followers. That goes with advertising or following up with your reports on a project.
A simple way to look at it is to ask two questions (especially if you want to be strategic):
1. What will probably happen if I take this action?
2. What will probably happen if I take no action?
That will sort out a lot, assuming you have thought about what you want to happen!
