Growth Tools - Practical tools for meaningful growth

Value Doing

Life begins when you get out of the grandstand into the game.” -- P. L. Debevoise

We can read about swimming and watch swimmers all day long, but we don’t learn to swim until we get into the water and give it a try.

I spend a lot of time planning what I want to do – and that is important. But my biggest insights and results come when I immerse myself into my writing or project – when I actually do it.

It’s only when I’m truly doing something—writing an article or actually creating something—that I really connect with the energy of it. When I’m fully engaged in my activity, the energy builds. Inspiration and ideas and connections flow.

But when I’m just thinking about something, I’m an outsider looking in. I’m separated from the full experience. My mind is a mere spectator judging what might happen. Because I’m immobile and physically uninvolved, ideas and words do not flow easily.

So here’s the bottom line: Instead of thinking and worrying about it, just do it! This is especially true for shorter tasks. 

 “If you keep thinking about what you want to do or what you hope will happen, you don’t do it, and it won’t happen.” -- Joe DiMaggio

“We don’t know who we are until we see what we can do.” -- Martha Grimes
