Make It Happen

Are you suffering from Paralysis by Analysis?

I know that's a corny old term, but the reason it has survived for so long is it's TRUE.

I read a Press Release from another IBO member this morning on a different slant, but it reminded me of this old reminder that I need reminding of often. It's do easy to get engaged in busy work online and think you are making progress, when you are going nowhere.

There are so many stories told around this theme, because so many people need to read them. It's that simple!

I heard one about a magician on stage at a large motivational seminar that set a burning candle on a table, then told the huge audience that they had unmeasurable power in their collective minds and if they would concentrate with all their might, they could cause the candle to go out.

Well they closed their eyes and gritted their teeth and focused intently on accomplishing that goal, but after several minutes when they looked up, the candle was still brightly burning.

Finally the magician turned to a well dressed attendee in the front row and asked him to come to the stage. He spent a few minutes in chit chat to put him at ease and let the audience get to know him a little, then softly asked him to blow out the candle (which he quickly and easily did) and then remained silent a few seconds to let the event that just happened soak in.

Then he thanked the confused assistant and sent him back to his seat.

This is not magic, it's just points out a simple moral that no matter how hard you sit around thinking about how to solve a problem or reach a new goal, NOTHING is going to happen until you take ACTION.

Even if it's the wrong thing (you can fix that later), DO SOMETHING.

So have you written a new Press Release today?
