Will Rogers once said, “Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you sit there.”
Information, knowledge and education are only useful when put into action. In our new economy, you can’t just sit there and wait for your ship to come in. You have to be willing to jump in and swim out to it before the pier rots. As the saying goes; “It’s better to wear out than rust out.”
Here is a scenario you might recognize: There were once four people named Everybody, Somebody, Nobody, and Anybody. An important job had to be done and Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Of course Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Therefore Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.
Be Somebody who is willing to make things happen. Follow the advice of Nike and “just do it!”
