Great Things Come to Those Who Act

I’m sure you’ve heard the old saying…

“Good things come to those who wait.”

It’s solid advice for having patience and understanding that timing is important, because it is.

But, it’s also an easy excuse for procrastination and complacency.

Sometimes we just need to take action. Sometimes we’ve already been given what we need (ideas, permission, resources, etc) but we let fear hold us back.

GOOD things do come to those who wait, but I’m of the opinion that…

…GREAT things come to those who act!

Only you know which you REALLY need to do.
