It’s been said that there are three types of people… those that “make” things happen, those that “watch” things happen and those that “wonder” what happened. The emphasis here is typically on the last person, those wondering what happened. I’d argue however that the more dangerous place to be is the person watching things happening; standing on the sidelines of their own life. My challenge to you is to stop watching other people make things happen. How you might ask?
Get involved. Make your checklist. Write down your goals. Crack your own whip. You’d be surprised how much can be accomplished in small steps. If you have friends or loved ones “watching and wondering”, then pull them into your vortex and make things happen together. Life’s too short and there’s simply no excuse not to make things happen.
