While you weigh your options, someone else is already taking action.

Here's the problem with carefully considering your options. No amount of thinking or research can ever ensure an outcome.

We play this story in our minds, that we're searching for answers and looking for the right path. But what are we really doing? Thinking can't take you very far without action.

Some people take a more action-oriented approach. Instead of waiting to feel 100% certain about a decision, they take action sooner, realizing that taking action is the only way to know for sure. Instead of trying to arrive at the perfect mental answer, these people say "let's try it and see what happens!"

While you weigh your options, someone else is already taking action. Action isn't always the right answer, but most of us could use more doing and less thinking.
