We’ve all had our moments when a great idea popped into our head that, if implemented, could make people’s lives easier, more enjoyable, and/or more meaningful.
But guess what?
An idea isn’t gonna do anything for anybody until something is done about it!
In fact, as long as that great idea is just sitting around in your head it’s probably doing more harm than good. It’s like procrastinating. Work that you keep postponing to complete causes stress, anxiety, fear, and usually more procrastination – making it a vicious cycle spiraling downward until something interrupts it…
You have to take what came to you as a thought and make it into something tangible that people can interact with. You never know if an idea is good or bad until you take the chance and give it a shot.
Below is our carefully selected Top 10 Quotes from the 250+ ‘Take Action’ Quotes that we truly feel drive our point home.
