    Very good article indeed. I see so many "Talkers".....I think the world is saturated of them.... in these days so few people take action...

    But it is far easier to talk rather than walk! :p

    Ohhh.....

    I am such a talker. I keep kick myself to be a doer.

    It is an everyday battle. Get stuff done. Get stuff done. Get stuff done.

    I guess I should tape my mouth shut, point my eyes at my work, and not move from my seat until it is done.

    Thanks for sharing the post.

  • Great article! Action is needed everyday, there is no tomorrow. And yes, video games can be a serious downtime, if You can`t control it.
    Chris, is this Your friends blog?

      Aleksejs,

      No, he's not anyone that I know personally, but I've been reading his blog for a long time. Always great content.

    As a self proclaimed talker I am exactly as described in the article...although it's COD for me not Stracrack but it's the same difference.

    I can even relate to the clinical depression as I have been diagnosed with that within the last year as well...

    now it's just a matter of doing...I need to learn to schedule and prioritize...it's just so much easier to come home from work, login and check out for the day.

    I would love to hear how others are dealing with these challenges...how do you schedule your time.

      Andrew, great quote!!

      I never read that one before, but it's so true! I'm taking that quote, printing it out, and pinning it on my wall.

      Thanks,

      Paul

    That's a funny article - I've done much the same - with the same game. I bought it a few weeks ago because my nephew just got it and wanted someone to play. I finally got to play it with him and my other nephew this weekend, but I've now notched-up about 100 games since I got it and only 4 of those were with my nephews.

    nothing to see here.

    Very insightful, I think we could all take something away from this.

    I recently was doing very well with a certain traffic source, when bought a new game Red Dead Redemption for my xbox this caused me to do no work for a week or very little anyway and my profits suffered heavily its very easy to be distracted I find writing a daily plan helps me stay focused I take 10 minutes before my tea to write the next days jobs, this really helps me

    Talkers vs. Doers
    Five years ago, I was full of hot air. Well, that and I was clinically depressed.
    But something changed in the autumn of 2005. I began to read a lot of books. Not just personal finance books (though, as you know, I read plenty of those), but also self-help books and success manuals. I read Feeling Good to deal with my depression,


    Being someone who has been diagnosed with depression this is an insult. Picking up a book aint gonna cut it. I think he needs to clarify. I know how hard it is to be a doer, even if you don't have health ailments!

    Reason why I at least try to JV and leverage because I am not the island I once was.

    Oops a rant
