We’ve all heard the idiom that ‘Actions speak louder than words’ right? Well, what happens when the words are very loud and your too busy to take action? Or how about the fact that sometimes people forget just how powerful words can really be? I mean, take this blog for example, I’m SURE I’ve changed millions of lives so far….and by millions, I mean maybe one or two….and they were probably both Corgis (miss you Ripster!).
But I digress. How about this for perspective? Take the strong words you’ve either heard or said and put them into action. Sure, actions MAY speak louder than words, but you know what’s even better….Actions BACKED UP by words. Actions ACCOMPANIED by words. Not sure WHY my caps lock key gets stuck, but whatever.
Remember that we don’t live in a black and white world. If there is anything you take away from these posts is that the extremes usually never sustain. It’s the balance, it’s seeing things from both and all sides. So, actions are great. Words are great too. But in order to be fully great, you need to do the right amount of both.
So, what are you waiting for? Be great!
