DOING is the single most important step you’ll ever do!

DOING is the single most important step you'll ever do! - Goals InfiniteMany of us are stuck at planning. We spend so much time on coming up with a flawless plan and never get to actually execute it. The goal of this article is to raise a point and convince the readers to take the most important step they’ll ever make, and start doing things!

Warning, this is going to be harsh!

Let’s get this out of the way at the start. You’ll never advance without doing. Period! You can spend all your time planning a reliable plan and getting ready for every possible outcome, but it will do you no good if it is never executed. A plan is nothing if no action follows it. A famous American company has an awesome slogan, that everyone who suffers from analysis paralysis should take to the heart: “Just do it”.

Here are a few simple questions. I recommend to ask them yourself every day:

  • What will you do today to make progress?
  • When will you do it?
  • Do it!
  • What will you do tomorrow to make progress?
  • When will you do it?
  • Do it!

I know how analysis paralysis can cripple your progress, so you get stuck at the drawing board, with a detailed plan that will never be executed. I had so many projects that were doomed from the start because of my mindset. I had to embrace the thought “There is no progress without doing”, and if you have a similar problem you should do the same. Now I have a few projects that are constantly running, has scheduled actions and deadlines. One of these projects is this site.

The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today. – H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

I hope this argument, helps you think differently about progress and planning. If you enjoyed this article, I’d like to ask you to share it with someone. This cost nothing and it will help this site to grow. All help is greatly appreciated. If you have some thoughts on the topic or want to start a discussion, you can do that by leaving a comment or writing me an email. Now get out there and start doing things! 🙂
