Thinking is waste of time – Take Action

You must have heard the story of a person who worshiped god for many years and every day requests to bless him to win 1 crore lottery. One day god appeared and asked with frustration – ‘My child I am ready to bless, but request you to buy a lottery ticket first !”.


Majority of us spend most of the time in thinking, planning and discussions, which delays the actual action.  No one will recognize or pay you for what you know or planned, if same has been not implemented. World pays you for your actions !

‘Action expresses priorities. ~ Mahatma Gandhi’

When you take action then it is the first step in completion of any project or activity. It is the first signal that you are serious and want to complete this project. When I was learning programming then I came to know a methodology to overcome a situation when all the processes are in deadlock position – take an arbitrary move in any direction. Simple meaning – is to ‘take some action’ if you don’t know what to do now.

When you take action then you begin to learn from your practical experiences that can’t be learned from books. You start getting feedback, which helps you to know how to do it in better way. Things which were difficult at initial stage, start becoming easier. Finally a momentum is created which leads you to the success.

There are many thing which makes a man successful but the one main thing which separates  winners from losers is that – winners takes action. Winner never stops after thinking & planning, they take action.  The successful people are highly action oriented and they believe in starting. I have also experienced it many times that something which was appearing tough while thinking & planning,  was actually not an uphill task. It was dragged because of my delay in taking action.

If you want to complete the job…..don’t waste time…….take ACTION !!!

Some great statements : 

1. An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

2. Action is the foundational key to all success. ~ Pablo Picasso

3. Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action. ~ Benjamin Disraeli

4. Action is the real measure of intelligence. ~ Napoleon Hill

5. When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps. ~ Confucius
