You are what you think.
You are what you go for.
You are what you do!
-Bob Richards, submitted by Jenn C., Mt. Pleasant MI
The critical ingredient is
getting off your butt and doing something.
It’s as simple as that.
A lot of people have ideas,
but there are few who decide
to do something about them now.
Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today.
The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.
-Nolan Bushnell, submitted by Debra E., Ohio
Many of us are still enjoying the holiday weekend and avoiding work, and of course I celebrate that. I encourage you to take the rest of today to relax and kick back. Starting tomorrow, however, I dare you to jump up, get to work or school, choose a project that needs to be tackled, and DO. Think of the next 5 days, or 5 hours, or even 5 minutes as a most valuable and precious opportunity to move away from “thinking about it” and zoom towards becoming a DOer!
I dedicate this issue of Ripples to Marvin Becker, 1942-2008, who was most definitely a DOer. I was glad to know you, Marv, and I promise I will stop thinking about learning how to play sheephead and just DO it!
