Taking Action

Last year I re-posted a colleague's observation about how few people follow through after investing in a costly home study package the colleague sells, how few take action. The thought recently came to the surface again, only from a different perspective.

This time I found myself wondering about what defines "action." Like so many things in life, it's not uncommon to be percolating on an idea for awhile, invisible to others and even to ourselves. It's going on at a subconscious level, and then it moves to a different place, a more visible place. A couple ideas make it onto a piece of paper or into the beginning of a computer file. There it may sit for awhile longer. Then, it may seem like all of a sudden, it blossoms. A flow of energy takes over, and you are on a roll. The ideas come forward, you organize and refine them, you complete the booklet. All of this could have taken minutes, hours, days, months, or years. You've got the product. Yaaaaay.

And then the same thing happens all over again in getting the product out into the world. You think about ways to do it. You ponder it for awhile, gathering a bit at a time, contacting one place at a time, and then a rush of energy shows up. And yes, again, it could have taken minutes, hours, days, months, or years. You're on your way, regardless of how long.

Your definition of taking action belongs to you and only you. I've known (and even lived with!) people who you couldn't push and you couldn't stand in their way. (all in the same person). They have their definition of taking action. You have yours. Whenever you're ready, let me know.

Until next time,
Paulette - who is ready when you are
