#170: You Need Action, Not Advice [WOYG Podcast]
The first version of my website sucked. It was really bad.
It was all HTML, and I am far from a programmer. I’m also not a designer. The site looked horrible. Yet, I had readers and fans. People respected the site.
Why? Because I had done what many people also wanted to do. But it wasn’t even that I had done it better than them. It was that I’d done it, period. I had started a website, when many people were thinking about a website. I’d taken action, jumping into the pool while some stood on the edge wondering how cold the water was.
That mindset served me when I started my pro basketball career, again knowing nothing. And again when I decided to become a professional speaker. And again in consulting. And again in hiring assistants. And it will serve me again and again in the next things I do.
Did I ever seek advice on what I was doing in these areas? YES! But only after I’d taken enough action to know what I needed advice on.
This episode tells you why you need to start taking action as if your future depended on it. One good reason is because it does.
