Initiative - Develop a Bias for Timely Action

We can fool ourselves into believing that good intentions and ideas are enough. But developing a sense of urgency and taking timely action is the only way to get things done. These insights will inspire you to move from procrastinating to implementation. And you don’t have to wait until you have everything perfect. As Theodore Roosevelt said, “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are."

What’s holding you back from taking the steps that will help you achieve your dreams?

“Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.” - Benjamin Disraeli, British statesman

“All the beautiful sentiments in the world weigh less than a single lovely action."
- James Russell Lowell, American poet

“Talk does not cook rice.” - Chinese Proverb

“Even if you’re on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.”
- Will Roger, American Actor
