Motivational Quote - Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.

SparkPeople's Comments

You can have the best plan in the world, full of timelines, specific outcomes and contingency plans. But if you’re not willing to take that first step, your plan will just hang on the wall like flypaper. Action creates opportunity. Action builds momentum. Action clears the path to success. Inaction just leads to regret. Once you take that first step, it’s important to keep moving. Your past actions got you where you are today. They’ve done their job. They can’t be expected to carry you all the way to tomorrow’s goals too. Your future requires new action. What are you going to do between now and then to see it through? Take a look at your plan. Find one step – any step – and get moving…. go on, what are you waiting for?…. pull away from your computer and do it now…. here comes the train….

I've loved Will Rogers since I was in high school, and this quote is another gem.
