"Conviction is worthless unless it is converted into conduct." (Thomas Carlyle)
Are you a thinker, or a doer?
I'm a thinker, and I know it. I love to ideate, contemplate, ruminate, and then pontificate my ideas to whomever will listen.
But all these ideas aren't worth much unless I put them into action. (Or at least into blog posts). I'm trying to become more biased toward action, because doing what I think about is far better than just thinking about what I'm going to do.
Here are some more quotes about the power of action:
"As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do." (Andrew Carnegie)
"The great aim of education is not knowledge but action." (Herbert Spencer)
"It is better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness." (Confucius)
(That last one fits well in this 21st century, where complaining into an online megaphone is seen, somehow, as a civic duty.)
