Are You Still Sitting on the Limb? It's Time to Take Flight.

Published on 1/3/2018
For additional information  Click Here

Imagine five birds are sitting on a limb of a tree. Count them: one, two, three, four, and five. Three of the birds decide to fly off. How many birds are left sitting on the limb? You might be tempted to say two, figuring five minus three equals two (5-3 = 2). I beg to differ. I suggest all five birds are still sitting on the limb because the decision to fly off is very different than the action of flying off!

Making a decision and taking action is vastly different! Leaders take action even when they don’t know the best thing to do. We all know people who have made New Year’s resolutions or decisions to do something but have failed to take the actions necessary to make it a reality. Go ahead and use this story with those around you. They can tell you they made a decision, but if they haven’t taken the action, then they’re still sitting on the limb. Maybe someone in your business made the decision to communicate or delegate more, but if they aren’t taking the actions necessary to be successful, they are still sitting on the limb. Or maybe you have decided to lose weight or invest money, but are always thinking about what to do. ACTION is the key. Be an action fanatic today!

Many times the act of taking action clears the way for the proper action to take. When you first put yourself in motion, it may not be the best action, but it can create a better action, and another better action and another when before you didn’t know what to do.

Write down two actions that support a decision you have made recently but have been holding back on taking action. Tell them to a friend and commit to doing them this week.

TAKEAWAY! There is a big difference between making a decision and taking action. Be an action fanatic! Action Step #1 Make a list of five choices you have made, such as: to lose weight, exercise, make more money, have a better relationship, invest or save money, spend more time with the children, etc. Assign each decision a specific day. Don’t go to sleep each day until you have taken action on that decision.


Hope you can gain something from this PR, and if you believe it will help someone else, please share.
