The Urgency Of Doing

One of my all time favorite quotes is by Leonardo Da Vinci.

“I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough;
we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.”

There is so much truth in this statement. We tend to over think too much.
What happens is that we’ll get into this paralysis of analysis. Trust me I have been there.

If thinking is the child then doing is the adult. Of course we all want to stay children
and have fun, but to really get going you have to take some adult steps.

Our lazy brain often doesn’t want that. It wants us to stay in our known world.
A place where you have to try as less as possible so you can make it to the end of the day.

Making it to the end of the day will not work in this hyper connected world.

We have to be innovative and try unexplored lands. There is so much to learn and that is a
good thing because nowadays we have so many resources to chose from. Lots of them are even
free but you have to do the work and look for them.

So doing, doing and more doing will be helpful for progress.
