Thursday Thought: Thinking v Doing

by Dian Reid-Jancic· Follow Dian on

If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.
—Bruce Lee

True. And also, there’s more.

If you’re spending a lot of time thinking about something and not doing it, there are two likely possibilities:

  1. You are ready to move forward (and instead are procrastinating by telling yourself you’re not ready to move forward).
  2. You are not ready to move forward (and are looking for reasons to not move forward).

The thing is, we’re rarely (if ever) ready to move forward. In fact, we tend to learn the most when we’re not prepared and do our learning on the fly.

And if the plunge, whatever your plunge may be at the moment, still seems too big and scary to do move forward, that may be telling you that you’re not ready to move forward.

You don’t always need to do the thing. But at some point you will need to make a choice.

Listen to your self. Listen to who’s speaking. Is it Your Authentic You or is it one of your Gremlins? Be honest with yourself and move forward with what’s right for you.

Whatever you do: stop thinking, start choosing.
