Four things come not back: the spoken word, the spent arrow, the past, and the neglected opportunity.

Rein in your brain

Rein in your brain. Think about what you do before you do it, but don’t overthink.

Think it through, then quickly act on what you think. Keep your thoughts going, but don’t let them stop you from making progress.

Are there things you’ve thought of doing, things you’ve wanted to do, that you’re not doing? Stop thinking about them so much and start acting on them.

Honor and value your thoughts by committing them to action. Go ahead, take the first step, and then keep going.

Your thoughts are powerful, and it’s easy to let them become a substitute for action. It’s much better, though, to let your thoughts push you into action.

Doing what you intend to do is not really that difficult. Just stop thinking so much about it, and start acting on it.

— Ralph Marston
