Commit with action

Wishes, plans, and promises have a common deficiency. They all lack meaningful commitment.

Commitment begins when you take action. The most impressive words, the most detailed strategies have little meaning until they’re acted upon.

Are you not quite ready to begin? Begin anyway, initiate genuine commitment, and you’ll quickly be making progress and will forget about whether you were ready or not.

You can always learn and adjust as you go, but it doesn’t work the other way around. You never make progress if all you’re doing is learning, preparing, and revising your plans.

Give your intentions the action they deserve. Implement your plans, go where they lead, and you’ll invoke the power of commitment.

If you wish you could, if you think you can, begin it. Commit with action and make it happen.

— Ralph Marston
