Think and do

You could spend years and years figuring out how to take three steps at once. Or you could simply take one step, and then the next, and then the next.

Being able to think things through is a tremendously valuable skill. But don’t let all that thinking prevent you from doing.

Sometimes it pays to think of a more efficient or effective or faster way to complete the task. Other times you’re better off when you just go ahead and do it.

Analyzing what you must do can be helpful. Yet analysis by itself won’t get the job completed.

After you think it through, go ahead and get it done. Put your clever thinking into action, and you’ll have something of tangible value to show for it.

Put your mind to work and you’ll create great ideas. Then put those ideas to work with your efforts, and bring them successfully to life.

— Ralph Marston
