A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action

A real decision is measured by the fact:

“A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.”
– Tony Robbins


Meaning of quote:

The idea behind the quote, “a real decision is measured by the fact you’ve taken a new action” is based around the idea we’ve repeated in many posts.

It’s this idea by Jim Rohn, “if you want things to change for you, you’ve got to change. If you want things to get better, you’ve got to get better.”

Things don’t get better by hope, they get better by change.

“Ideas are a dime a dozen. People who implement them are priceless.” – Mary Kay

If you’ve decided you’re going to lose weight or get in better shape, that’s great. Your head is in the right place. But until you show up at the gym you’ve made no progress towards that goal. The only way to measure if a real decision had been made is if you’ve taken action.

When’s the best time to take action?

Act when the emotion is hot.

How many times have you had a great idea or wanted to do something but waited and the energy you had for the idea just evaporated.

There’s no motivation left.

So, don’t just get excited and not let it lead to action. Take the first step.

There’s always two sides to a coin – you don’t just want to start a business every time you have an idea. But do, do the research, analyze the competition, measure the commitment that will be required of you. Other times we just need to go, because waiting and over analyzing tends to result in paralysis.

More often then not, it’s that we don’t take enough action, so being aware of that should help you find the balance. If you end up going in the wrong direction at least you found out quicker… beats waiting a year to start and then finding out.

“Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”

Warren Buffett
