The people we don’t know about choose to think about what they are going to do without doing anything.
The people who are remarkable and successful go for the other option which is to do what they think about.
You can’t do something without thinking about it. However, some people think to the point when nothing gets done.
People commonly think of ways to be perfect instead of realizing that true perfection does not exist. This leads to more thinking and less doing.
As Walt Disney said, “The only way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”
My first YouTube videos were my computer on an ironing board. Then I got a table to put my computer on. Spoiler alert: starting in April, I will have a white board in my videos and will be standing. The lighting and sound qualities are both better.
Thinking does not equate to doing. Thinking is like the big snowball on the top of the hill. The only way to see progress (to do) is by pushing that snowball down the hill.
Make a choice today to do the things that will help you accomplish your dream because thinking about them is not enough.

Thank you Carol 🙂
Agree 100%. After preparing whichis essential, there comes the time to take that plunge.

Superb post, Marc! Many of us get too caught up in thinking and forget to actually act.

I could not agree more, Marc. There’s no substitute for action. There’s no good writing, only re-writing. People don’t lack knowledge these days. They lack execution.
