"Winners take imperfect action
while losers are still perfecting the plan."
-- Tony Robbins
I love this statement by Tony Robbins except that I don't see winners and losers, but just choosers and each choice creates an outcome.
I have done my best to live this creed. So many of the things that I've done through my life, I just decided I wanted to do it and began imperfectly, then began to almost immediately improve and then constantly improve.
Sometimes those decisions and beginnings ended up going for a time and then were discarded for something different. NBD. In fact, I learned so much from the process of doing that I could become an advisor to others to save them time and money.
I've changed careers in much the same way. I was an auto mechanic and didn't enjoy that as much as I would like, so decided with my knowledge of cars, I could sell them. So, I went and got a job selling cars. Then, decided I wanted to be the manager, and in a very short time, became the manager. Then, I grew weary of where that dealership was going and decided to leave and open a musical instrument store, and within 3 weeks it was opened.
I could have sat around and planned out all of these moves looking for the numbers, creating a strategy, how-to list of marketing, purchasing, and so much more. The longer I did that, the further away the actual doing would get.
There was a time I used to look back and regret decisions because they didn't work out exactly as I would have liked, but I have learned that this is a complete waste of time and energy.
Everything that we do is of value in some way or another. It doesn't matter how long we do it, whether it was a financial success or not. If we think of the experience of doing, of creating something out of our minds into reality, that in and of itself is fulfilling. In fact, I have become so appreciative of what I've done in these decisions and action because there is a bit of each that makes me whole.
