Take Action Now – What I Learned From People Who Didn’t — 16 Comments

  1. It’s important to have a good idea. But yes, it’s taking the steps to make it happen that will get you somewhere!

  2. I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing to toss a lot of “I’d love to try…” at the wall, even if you don’t do them. Sometimes once you speak it or get feedback, you realize why it’s not a good idea. But if you never, ever take action then maybe it’s time for a little nudge 🙂

  3. Yea, I can’t afford to waste time. For me, it’s the opposite problem: rearranging and rescheduling so I CAN commit to the stuff I want to do!

  4. I am dragging and not taking action now. My career has ended and I’m trying to find what to do next. An idea came up a few weeks ago but still I haven’t acted on it. I’m pretty sure you posted this for me to get up and follow through 🙂

    I really needed this!

  5. I’m learning that I need to be more proactive – or less I’ll likely be stuck like those that do not take action are. I have lots of goals for the new year, and right now I am taking action to get things scheduled for the rest of December, as I plan to take time off once the baby is here (any day now!).

  6. I’m surrounded by people who have awesome ideas and who take action, so their ambition rubs off on me. I love it and appreciate the support we all offer each other!

  7. I think you need to surround yourself with like-minded people, so if you are TAN-minded, definitely work with others who are driven!

  8. Like Ashley above, I have learned many times that they can and will drag you down with them. While I started blogging kind of happenstance, I have a clear vision and goals of where I want my business to go and am actively (and proactively) taking action now

  9. Take action now and stop talking about it… that’s pretty much how I started blogging! Haha. I have a few others things on my to-do list that could probably use some action NOW!

  10. I have learned that they can drag you down with them. It can make your own struggle that much harder to beat if you let them do it.

Tell me what you think.
