Get busy

The secret to getting things done, is doing them. That may sound obvious, yet too few people take it to heart.

All too often we avoid taking action because we feel we’re not qualified, or not worthy, or the timing isn’t right, or the market conditions are not ideal, or it might not work out, or “what would people think?", or “what would I be missing?” The list of reasons for not taking action, is endless.

What are YOU waiting for? Whatever it is, it won’t come unless you do something about it. There are many obstacles to every course of action. The biggest obstacle, however, comes from not doing anything. Fortunately, that’s an obstacle that you can overcome instantly, as soon as you start to take action.

Waiting for things to get better? They’ll be better when you make them better. Get busy and make it happen.

— Ralph Marston
