Week 5: No NFL, NBA, MLB, College Football . . .
Projects. A conscious decision to work on accomplishing a project instead of donating three hours of my time watching a game.
This week's project involved moving out a good portion of a utility closet, adding a shelving unit, and cleaning out a pantry. It's our first step to having space to hoard food and paper goods for when the upcoming apocalypse begins to devour us (in reality, we've just always thought it would be a good idea to have shelves in there and 35-years later is as good a time as ever).
All this process has reminded me of the American business philosopher Robert Ringer. His philosophy, in part, states that the most important success habit when it comes to determining how an individual's life plays out is ACTION! Ideas can be precious commodities that can change the world. Sound preparation is invaluable. Knowledge and wisdom are essential when it comes to giving one an edge in the pursuit of great achievements. But . . .
IT'S ALL USELESS WITHOUT ACTION. Because ACTION is the starting point of all progress. It is action that cuts the umbilical cord and brings an idea out of the womb.
So, what's the critical ingredient? Getting off my butt and doing something.
