Inaction Drains Energy. Action Empowers

September 10th, 2010

I recently completed a project that had been on my plate for a year or more. Only procrastination and minor details prevented me from getting started. When I finally rolled up my sleeves, enlisted some assistance and finished the job, I was amazed at how energized and alive I felt. Only then did I realize my inaction had been sapping my energy that whole time.

If you have an idea, either act on it or drop it. The action you take doesn’t have to be large, it may simply be doing some research or hiring help. Or maybe your action might be to postpone action for six months, but do it deliberately.

Small actions generate power way out of proportion to their size. And ideas neglected are like a slow leak.
