“Learn by the act of doing. Rather than theory or conceptualizing. Or what too many of us do, too much research. Procrastination disguised as research.” Marie Forleo

“Start before I’m ready. We can kid ourselves by saying: I’m not ready to do that yet. I’ll be ready to go to the gym after Christmas. I’ll be ready to start writing once I get my fall break. Start before I’m ready.

“Learn by the act of doing. Rather than theory or conceptualizing. Or what too many of us do, too much research. Procrastination disguised as research.”

“Working is the most dangerous form of procrastination. It feels productive and it’s endless”

“Don’t let the perfect enemy of good. Do something.”

“Action is a way to move right through fear. You’ll feel it. You’re never going to not feel fear. Once you take action, you’ll gain momentum. Momentum is a secret super power that can make almost anything happen.”

“Action is the antidote to anxiety. You’re very anxious about getting started. Just getting started itself gets you over that anxiety. The it’s underway.”

“Action is the antidote to fear. Most of the time, once we get into the action of doing something it’s actually fun. I’m learning, growing and I can figure it out”

“Even if it goes wrong, I can correct it because it’s not a fantasy.”
