‘Good ideas without action are just bad excuses.’
I’m not sure if this saying from 2009 needs to be explained, but I will anyway, with an example.
A lot of people say:
‘I’m gonna write a novel!’
but then don’t start writing, they don’t act on their words. So it turns into:
‘I’m gonnna write a novel – when I’ve got a bit more time, after the kids have moved out, after I’ve bought a new computer, after I’ve finished painting the Sistine chapel…’
etc., etc., etc..
Hence: good ideas without action are just bad excuses.
