Take Action on Your Ideas.

'The Daily Dose' By Matt Potts

“Imperfect action is better than perfect inaction.”

Harry Truman

I want you to imagine something for me.

It seems like a normal day, you’re getting out of bed and something just dawns on you.

That problem that you’ve been thinking of for so long?

You’ve solved it.

And it’s not just your problem, it’s the problem of many others as well.

This solution could theoretically make you a heap of money.

Exhilarated you note down your thoughts, barely able to keep up with how fast your brain is working.

Excited about what you’ve thought of, you call your friend.

After explaining what you’ve thought of something strange happens. 

The phone goes dead.

Then from the silence comes the words that confirm that it wasn’t just a cool idea.

It was an incredible idea.

Weeks past, you tell some more people and they are all equally amazed.

For now though that’s as far as you take it.

Life is busy you know.

Who has the resources or the time to start something like that?

It’s too hard.

The gap seemed too big.

A few years later you are walking past the TV and something catches your attention.

It’s an interview with somebody realeasing a product.

It was the solution to the same problem you thought of.

What a strange moment, because standing there you realise that that could of been you. ***

Do you know that story is more common than you think?

I based this story off the person who originally invented the common household powerboard. Did he patent or even commercialise his invention?


So how do you not let it be you? 

Start with imperfect action. 

Start with what you think of.

Start with something.


Follow through with your ideas.

At least then you’ll know you did your best if it never works out.

That’s much easier to deal with than doing nothing.

Never become that person.


Become the one where you can outwork who you care called to be.

The foundation of this lies in your capacity to take action on your ideas and dreams.
