Don’t Overthink. Do.
Balancing thought & ACTion will always be a challenge for many people. When you spend too much time picturing what a project is going to be like, too much time thinking about how awesome it will be… and too little time actually making the thing, you make no progress.
With respect to goals, projects, and other to-do items, it’s easy to get stuck too long in the thinking and planning phase.
The economist and author of Average is Over, Tyler Cowen, agrees: “The more information that’s out there, the greater the returns to just being willing to sit down and apply yourself. Information isn’t what’s scarce; it’s the willingness to do something with it.”
In my group Coaching at SURE Success Intensive, we exactly provide space and time to sit down and jot down 90 Day plan!
“The two most important requirements for major success are: first, being in the right place at the right time, and second, doing something about it” says Ray Kroc Many people get excited about a lot of ideas. But unfortunately, they easily begin pushing them further back on their to-do lists, if not completely disregarding them as being unfeasible or unrealistic.
When you value “the thinking mindset” more than “the doing mindset” you will eventually end up with a note app or notebook full of dozens or even hundreds of ideas and plans. Greater percentage of them will never be done. And you will most likely not think about a lot of them again. Some are maybe 5–10% complete, and a few maybe at least 50% done. It can quickly turn into inaction habit.
Results come to those who “act” while others are discovering the “right” ways to generate results.
Leonardo Da Vinci says, “It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.”
A decision alone change nothing.
As Gregg Krech writes in his book The Art of Taking Action: Lessons from Japanese Psychology, external reality remains exactly the same after your decision to ask someone out, to write a book, or leave your job. What matters is “creating ripples”, as he puts it — actions, however tiny, that alter things in the world outside your head.
It’s what you Do that defines you. Do what you should. Don’t talk about what you should be doing.Being a Doer instead of just a Thinker requires an insane amount of discipline and commitment. Doing involves risk but it’s the only way to make progress. If you are not daring and focused enough, you can never get past the “thinking” stage of getting work done. Stop thinking you are at a disadvantage because of your weaknesses.
Thomas Jefferson once said, “Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.” If you really need to get something done, you will find a good reason why you have to pursue it otherwise your excuses will constantly convince you why it can’t be done. Now I suggest, you stop reading and pen down 3 things you want to do, accomplish and why? Feel free to drop an email to me it’s easy, firstname.lastname@example.org
