There is a buzz phrase in the business world, the sales world, the internet marketing world, the entrepreneurial world, and in the whole world in general: Take Action.

It means to just start doing.  Start acting.  Get out there and make moves.  Make some splashes.  Make waves.  You have to do it at some point right?  Why wait?

Even if you don’t know what the first step is, just take A first step.  It’s better than not stepping at all.  Even if it is the wrong first step, you’ll have educated yourself more than any training would have done.  And who knows! Maybe in that wrong first step, you generate some leads for your business!  Maybe you generate some sales!  Because you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take right?

If you’re thinking about an exercise plan, don’t wait to start exercising!  Just start by doing some push-ups, sit-ups  running/walking, etc.  While these are simple exercises, doing them while you are still planning your full exercise regiment will only make the transition into the exercise regiment easier, and maybe you’ll drop a pound or two in the process!  Nothing wrong with that right?

You may not realize it, but by not taking action, you are actually PROCRASTINATING.  You are just putting it off.  Waiting until later.  It is no secret that procrastinating beings 0 results.  The only thing that brings results is action.  Even if your inefficient action is bringing some results, its better than no action and no results.  Period.

“On the plains of hesitation bleach the bones of countless millions who, at the dawn of decision, sat down to wait, and waiting died.” – Sam Ewing
