Winston Churchill on Action

I never worry about action, but only inaction – Winston Churchill

Inaction is a choice to do nothing. You do take an action by doing nothing – you watch possibilities pass by.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Maybe it feels less risky to do nothing. Well, you have minimized the risk from taking action. But you have increased any risks that come from the inaction. It can be risky to do nothing – inertia sets in, problems become larger, opportunities become more distant.

It’s easier to course correct than to get started. That’s why I love Churchill’s quote. With action, you’re in motion and you can tweak, adjust, refine as needed. With inaction, you have to amass the momentous energy to lift off and start from nothing.

What action can you take today?
