Stop thinking. Go do something. Go do anything. Go.
“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.” ~ Bruce Lee
I’m a thinker. I care about what people think of me and how I come off. I love talking about goals, ideas, passions, and the future. But the thing is, talking isn’t action. Talking isn’t doing. Talking is a lot like consuming.
Action is about producing. Action is about building. Action is about the journey to the destination.
We all have goals. We all have ideas of what our ideal life looks like. But so few of us get there. “Life” gets in the way. Do do something great, it takes time, energy and focus. It take willpower. It takes engagement.
I’ve had periods in my life where I was fully engaged. Fully consumed by my goals – and I loved it. The days melted by because I was building something towards my goals. But situations change and you need to constantly be setting more goals and taking more action.
This blog is about that. To stop being paralyzed by talk of dreams, and do go reach them. I’m not sure if I’ll get exactly where I’m aiming for, but I know that I will do something great because of constant action.
I know more than enough. I’ve been learning/reading/listening/talking about making moves and reaching goals my entire life, and actually did start taking action 2.5 years ago. But progress has stagnated and I need a new challenge.
My goal for January 2015 is financial freedom. Financial freedom can buy time. T More time is how I can reach my other goals (health, relationships, personal development).
I’m currently work a great engineering job, but it’s a 8am – 4:30pm commitment everyday. I know I’m capable of leveraging my knowledge with action into an income that is highly leveraged, automated, scaleable, and time/location independent.
Start a business in the next 30 days that generates $100/day in revenue.
- It needs to bring value into people lives
- I must be able to manage it with <1 hour a day
- It must have high profit margins (>50%)
- Email/writing is the only communication needed to run it
- It’s operations must allow me to be location and time independent
- I must write everyday on this site for the next 30 days while setting it up
So that’s it. Simple right? I already feel the challenge engulfing me. I’m excited. Part of this challenge is documenting as much of it as I can so you can gleam my mindsets and actions to inspire you to make changes in your life as well.
