Take Action Now Because Movement is Life

 

Take Action Now and get things done because movement is life. Almost every person alive had heard at least one reference from the book of Ecclesiastes that there is a time and place, a season for everything under the sun. That idea was good and appropriate over 2,000 years ago when it was first penned sand it is still a good idea today. The idea is that there is a point of time at which we must move. We must move because movement is how things like ideas, plans and goals live.

Movement is life, so move to make things happen personally and professionally.

When it comes to taking action, there a few different kinds of people. There are some people who like to plan. They have all manner of planning journals, notecards, sticky notes, pens  and apps  for planning purposes. There are other people who are persons of action with no planning. These people do not plan, instead they are fly by the seat of their pants, do it in the spur of the moment people. Then there are other people who are smart planning then acting on the plans people. This last group of people area joy to watch because they make plans, follow-up with smart actions and get things done.

In the movie “World Ward Z,” the main character tried to convince a family to travel with him rather than sitting and hiding out until things got better. He told them, “Movement is life.”  Spoiler alert, the family that failed to move failed to survive. The main character who moved and his family survived. Take a moment now to look back over the course of your personal and professional life. How many times has a dream died or a plan faltered because you did not take action now, but decided to wait for “someday?”  Even more heartbreaking, have you ever had an idea that died because you failed to take action now and then saw someone else achieve that dream or goal you only talked about? Those who put movement behind their plans, goals and dreams are more likely to see those things become reality.

There are people all over the world who dreamed of great things and marvelous inventions years before they came to market. The world abounds with stories about who really invented the phone, the internet, the automobile and a million other things. Often the person telling the story ends the narrative with some version of, “I thought of that first, but I didn’t move on the idea because . . .  .” Failing to move can cost you dollars and opportunities. Movement is life.

  • Great post. And someone who was formally very lazy, something that has burn't me time and again.

    The trick is to do one small thing towards your goal, so that even if you don't do too much, after a week, some changes will have been made.

    Thanks for posting

  • It's all about having the courage to take action. Even if you fail, you tried! And that failure could lead you down a better path in the end.

  • This is very motivational. I definitely need to get moving more and thinking less.

  • This is really inspiring. Movement IS life, and we need to move metaphorically and physically to better ourselves!

  • I 've been doing this for the past few months and it's been great. None of us are getting out alive so we might as well "live in the moment"

  • So true! You have to take action now. Life really is about movement, and if you want to get something, you should take action. Thank you for this very inspiring post.

  • What a great message. I like to think of myself as a planner but a procrastinator at the same time. Everyone needs a little push sometimes.

  • only you could take a bad movie (made from a good book) and find a positive spin on it. Movement is Life.

  • Always going forward. So true you may miss the big event by waiting.
