Just as there is a big difference between talking and doing, there is a big difference in doing and doing in the right direction.
Often, to get out of the mode of talking, we start acting without thinking if the actions are in the right direction towards our goal. Or we assume that we are busy but in reality, the work is not towards the goal. I call this “feel good” work, where the efforts are behind no goal, but we talk to ourselves that it is towards the bigger goal.
When we get out of the talking mode and into the action mode, the actions are in the right direction towards the goal and not in the direction where the actual difference your action is making is not moving a needle moving towards the goal.
Stop talking, start acting, and start acting towards your goal.
