The doer alone learneth. – Frederich Nietzsche
Progress requires action.
Action creates mistakes.
Mistakes create the opportunity to begin anew but better.
So many are afraid of taking action out of a fear of making mistakes.
Really we should be more afraid of not taking action.
The key word in the quote above is “alone”. As in, you can’t learn and grow without doing things. Without mixing it up. Without making some mistakes.
Too many times I get stuck in over-analyzer mode and think too hard about something before getting started only to realize that I really just don’t know.
I don’t know the best way to do something I’ve never done before.
I don’t know the best way to do something I’ve already failed at.
I don’t know the best way to…….fill in the blank.
Only by trying (and probably failing, at least a little) will I really learn how best to tackle a particular situation.
Keep yourself moving.
Keep yourself learning.
Make it a great day.
