Take Action Now – What I Learned When I Started to TAN — 45 Comments

  1. I am glad that you like the story. The first time I heard it I had to read it again also.

  2. The first steps are scary, but just like when we learned to walk, we cannot let fear and the falls keep us from moving forward!

  3. It is okay to have a pity party because parties come to an end. After the pity party, take action now!

  4. That is true to take action now while there is still time to do it rather than waiting. Thanks for sharing this informative and interesting post.

  5. Oh my! I could read this blog post every morning. I had to read that bird on a wire example twice to get it! I definitely get it. Thanks for the encouragement!

  6. Oh wow.. when I saw TAN.. I was thinking sunshine 🙂 Yes, I agree! I’ve realized that many times you actually save time by “doing it now” than putting it on a checklist.

  7. Sometimes I just have to sit down and take a deep breath and come up with the best course of action.

  8. That is such a great point. I am a little of a procrastanator.

  9. Great post… no matter what it is, getting started always seems to be the hardest step…

  10. This is a good message. I plan on taking a break over the holidays to regroup and decide what I want to do for the next year.

  11. YES! Taking action now is imperative to reaching any goal. Its even imperative to encouraging yourself in the pursuit of larger goals. I feel so great when I take some kind of action – I feel like I can do so much more. Every day I take some kind of action step. This is a great post.

  12. Very true, indeed! It’s so important to stop just TALKING about things and DO them. I try to tell people this all the time AND … I try to remind myself. It can be hard and scary to take the first steps!

  13. So true! For the past year, I’ve stopped just talking about what I was going to do and took action!

  14. I needed that. I was having a bit of a pity party day today. My success or failure is in my hands. I need to stop thinking about it and just TAN.

  15. I will take action. Been in planning stage for a while and now need to get off my duff and make it happen… Thanks

  16. LOVED reading about those BIRDS!! I am going to tell that story to someone!! Deciding is NOT TAKING ACTION! SO true! TAKE ACTION NOW!

  17. This is so true! My husband is in the process of taking action to build his business right now!

  18. So true. I often wait around and should learn to just do it!

  19. Thank you for sharing this. I suffer from a big procrastination problem that has caused problems before. I have had to train myself to make to-do lists and really push myself… but when I do? Things happen!

  20. I always start with a list and then chip away taking action one step at a time.

  21. I love this! I always try to live by this sentiment but it’s a reminder is always helpful. There are some things I need to take action with today.

  22. The best thing I have learned is ” Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today!” I try to follow this quote, because truthfully, I can be the queen of procrastination!

  23. I really love that message – TAKE ACTION NOW. I mean, really, everything you want to accomplish has to begin with action!

  24. Breaking things down on a to-do list allows me to take action. Then I can look back at the end of just one day and see how much progress I have made – that motivates me to take action the following day too!

  25. I like your analogy of the birds on the wire. It is so true that our thoughts only matter when we turn them into action!

  26. Sometimes the best thing to do when you are overwhelmed is just begin!

  27. Sometimes you just have to push forward and make things happen!
