“Well Done Is Better Than Well Said”

Here’s a quote from everyone’s favorite printer, Ben Franklin. And, so many things that he said almost 300 years ago are still applicable today. If we can’t heed this remarkable patriot and printer’s words, well, who should we listen to?

So, what is the big idea behind this important quote?

Maybe it means that it’s better to do something than just contemplate it? Maybe it implies that, no matter how good something sounds, until something is actually DONE, it may be meaningless? Maybe old Ben is trying to spur us on to useful, proactive and productive activities?

Often, the idea of starting a task may seem daunting, but Nike has the right idea…

JUST DO IT! (I really LOVE that tagline!)

You might have a great business idea. Or want to begin a journal. Or design a new website. Or have a talk with an old friend. Or begin a new health or workout regimen. Or or or or!

The list can go on and on forever!

But, until you actually DO something about it, it is only an unfulfilled wish, plan or desire. It is up to YOU to make it happen.

So, what are you waiting for, take the bull by the horns and go accomplish something meaningful to you…TODAY!
