Hey, let’s meet these two people that I know. The first person lets called her Miss Doers. Yes, Miss “doers” living in the world of action. Blunt, straight-forward risk-takers, she is willing to plunge right into things and get her hands dirty. She live in the here-and-now, and place little importance on introspection or theory. She look at the facts of a situation, quickly decide what should be done, execute the action, and move on to the next thing.
And there is another another person called Miss Gonna. Miss Gonna said to her friends that she gonna do this, do that and do any other things after the things she said she’s gonna do. And two weeks later you will find her not gonna do all of those things she told she’s gonna to do. It is because she is busy talking and showing how she’s gonna do it. What should do and what she should not do that going to ruins her plans of building or creating the things she gonna do.
Miss Gonna is a friendly, happy persons. She’s enjoy being together with other people. Smart, eloquent, witty and charming, she like to be the centre of attraction because she wants everyone to know about her plans or her amazing ideas of something. She do not like to be alone. Her zest for life ensures that others feel well in her company and that she will quickly get to know people.
Than one day these two people decide to have an evening tea. Miss Doers comes right on time, because she know she have another thing to do after her evening tea with Miss Gonna, therefore she want her evening tea time to finish on time so she can moving to her to do list for the rest of the day. And than Miss Gonna come in the next 15 minutes, with a very blunt excuses of things that she have to do that make her come late. Miss Doers trying hard to understand and accept the risks of being bored waiting for Miss Gonna. They both than spending the rest of their evening talking about Miss Gonna dreams of starting a business.
There you go, you probably know these people and you probably part of them. If you want to stop being a talker and start being a doer, begin by defining your goal and listing out all the risks you might face. Getting stuff done requires setting aside the distractions and making progress every single day. Talkers find a million reasons to not get things done. But when you peel it back and look at the excuse, it’s simply unacceptable. Doers don’t accept excuses. They say “no” to distractions and get crap done. Moving from focus to execution is key. At this point, the doers have left the talkers in the dust. So if you are want to start writing your books you have to be ready for any shitty comments you got and have to face the fear of no one reading your stuff. What have you gotten done today? This week? This month? Do you know how your small accomplishments every day add up to the larger goal? If not, you might want to begin tracking that progress.
