Stop Thinking & Start Doing

I’m a thinker, always have been and probably always will be to some extent but one thing I’ve learned is that no matter how much I think or get stuck in my head, until I actually do something about it, it doesn’t change.

The Big Fish Nation recent blog post on “Do you think too much” ( was a good reminder for me especially since lately I’ve been that person who felt like she was spinning her wheels and getting nowhere.

I’ve had lots of ideas and things I’ve wanted to do or get done but it just wasn’t happening and I was getting frustrated. In Lorin's post she says “The most frustrated people I know are not in action. When we get stuck, we often try to think our way into action, but that just gets us even more stuck. The only way out is to try something different: we can’t expect to get different results by just doing the same thing over and over.”

It’s so true and sometimes it’s just a baby step that I need to get jump started towards creating what I want most. With only 6 weeks left before the end of the year, I’m going to focus on getting out of my head and start taking more actions that align with my values, my goals and my dreams!

What about you, are you ready to get out of your head and step into action? Join me and the other amazing and inspiring women commenting on Lorin’s blog post about Big Fish Principle #7 “Choose your attitude and your actions and boldly act!”
