Reading About Taking Action – Does It Make Sense?

“Action is the foundational key to all success.” — Pablo Picasso

While the premise of reading a book on taking action (isn’t it stopping us from taking action?) sounds silly it does in some ways make sense.

We all learn in different ways. Some people just need to hear the words “Take action” and they get it.

These people simply start doing because their brain either just gets it or they can decipher the underlying principles immediately: “If I act on it I’ll get results! By looking at the results I can adjust as I go along. Great!”

Now there’s a man of action! Or was it steel?

Other people need someone to Dutch Uncle them into it by being really blunt and explaining the consequences of their inaction.

Still, other people want to read a book on the reasoning behind it because that’s the best way for them to process the information.

I enjoy listening to audiobooks, observing people (and mentors) or watching videos. That’s the best ways for me to work things through.

Then there are those who are able to kick themselves into motion. That’s something we should all work on learning.

That way we don’t have to rely on watching YouTube, reading a book, or calling a mentor. We’ll carry that skill with us wherever we go.

However, until we get to that point we need to work with what we’ve got. If that means reading a book on taking action, then we have to do it.

Whatever helps us get things done.
