Henry Ford so matter-of-factually said, “You can’t build a reputation on what you’re going to do.” All the best thoughts and decisions have so little value without action. Accomplishment requires activity.
A decision to change something is limp without activity following the decision. Let’s say that I want to quit smoking, lose some weight, get more physically fit. I’ve made the decision hundreds of times probably and then remained the same or even made it worse by continually focusing on the problem and not the solution. The solution requires–no, it doesn’t simply require–it demands action. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. so eloquently encouraged us to “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
As important as action is, it was thinking that created a decision, and thinking that caused us to act, and it will be thinking that will keep us on the path toward our goal. If one were more important than the other, it would be thinking that prevails; however, when it comes to accomplishment in the physical world, activity, or action with our dedicated thinking behind it rules.
When I get my mind in order; that is, aligned with what I really want, then I make that executive decision, and take even the weakest of action, I am on my way. The more aligned my thought is, the stronger the action will be, but the less strength is required. Action alone is all work and no play and has limited results. Aligned thought with action makes accomplishment a delight.
Even The So-Called Wrong Decision Can Be Far Superior To No Decision At All.
