Planning vs Doing

First of all, I love Seth Godin.  If you haven’t ever read any of his stuff please do so immediately following the end of this blog post.  He is a genius.  I love him for many reasons, but mostly because he speaks to my urgency addicted, results driven frame of mind while helping me embrace that positive results require pulling the trigger, and that it is okay to do so prior to the ever so illusive ‘perfection’ of whatever it is you are putting out there.

It is the beginning of a new year.  A time when so many are reviewing, creating, and implementing plans.  A perfect time to remember planning without the ‘doing’ component is not a exercise in production, but merely a writing exercise.  Create your plan.  Then put it in motion.  Action without a plan is equally futile as a plan without action.
