Welcome to Day 352...And a powerful two letter word.
Anytime we're faced with a problem or a goal, there are two possible routes to take.
To Think or to Do.
And while both have merits, one option will get you realizing your dreams and goals a whole lot quicker.
Let me explain.
Yes, it's important to have big dreams and to think through a game plan. It's also helps to write out your long term goal and then to break it down into manageable tasks.
But the secret to getting real results comes not from the thinking, but from the doing.
In short, achieving goals is a direct result of our level of activity.
I admit I spend a lot of time thinking about my writing. In my head I'm scripting plot lines, playing with dialogue, and imagining exciting locales.
But I try and Do more.
Because it's not enough to simply want something or to continually think about your next steps. Which is why I make darn sure that those plot lines get written into chapters and that dialogue gets mixed into into working scenes.
Bottom line - think some, but do more.
