The reason you won’t take action

Inspiration

I’m a big fan of sharing quotes and whilst scrolling through my phone I came across one by Bonhoeffer. It perfectly answers something I found myself wondering a little over a year ago. In the spring of 2016 I found myself wondering why I wasn’t managing to do the things I wanted to and when I did start I couldn’t fully commit.

“Action springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

I’ve always been a big thinker but this quote made me realise that to think is not enough. Action will come from you being ready to take responsibility for yourself and for whatever you need to accomplish. I think it’s important to sometimes just admit to yourself that you aren’t ready to take responsibility yet. There’s nothing wrong with that because honesty is important.

But the most important thing is that you do take action at some point. If things don’t work out you can try again (and again and again!). Just don’t get too caught up in waiting until you’re totally ready because that time may never come.
