I just found this quote by the man himself:
"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: Founder of Atari and Chuck E. Cheese's

    You need to take action EVERY single day no matter how small that action is. This constant action will build and move you in the direction of your goal.

      The only time you can actually do anything is right now.

      Even if you are planning, you can only plan right now. If you are dreaming, you can only dream right now and if you ar taking action, then you can only do that right now.

      But you can probably only do one of those things at a time.

        I agree, and obvious question for someone like me with all the time, energy and resources is where to start?

        I'm considering the 30 day challenge, having watched all the modules, but dont know if its outdated.

        I'm considering buying the Niche Blitzkrieg, but dont know if its outdated.

        Wanting to get off the couch and do something, and making sure the first decision is the right decision is where I currently am.

        My new years resolution was to jump in, but I am still researching where to jump.

          Sometimes you just have to jump, learn and then jump again! Don't get caught in analysis paralysis!! Once you have started, you will probably make mistakes but those mistakes are what will give you the knowledge to get more and more on track.

            Thanks!

            Analysis paralysis absolutely describes me. By nature I tend to want to learn as much as I can before doing anything new.

            What the heck, huh?

            Jump!

    Yes just doing is so important. Better to be doing something then nothing at all. Even the smallest step makes you that much closer to your goal.

    This is a great quote. People think that what matters is a good idea. In fact, there are lots of good if not great ideas out there. What makes the difference is taking action. A half baked idea with focussed action will always produce better results that a great idea with little or no action.
