Think and then act

Think your actions through, but don’t think them away. Carefully consider what you do, but don’t let consideration take the place of action.

It is powerful to think about what you’re doing. For that power to be meaningful, you must actually do.

You’re too good, too worthy to merely imagine and fantasize about living a great life. Give substance to your dreams by giving real, sustained action to your thoughts.

You’re too capable and resourceful to allow your time to be wasted on fruitless speculation. Put your skills to work by putting your intentions into action.

Think and then act. Strategize and then implement that strategy.

Action without thought is reckless, and thought with no action is wasted. Merge the power of thought with the power of action, and do the great things you were born to do.

— Ralph Marston
