Quick post. Taking action.
One of our members on the discussion boards wrote about being depressed and not knowing what to do. My response to him was brief:
“To build on what Ray said... start cranking the handle.
Whether you’re lifting weights in the air, writing pages for your next book, or talking to a pretty girl, it’s pretty tough to feel bad about yourself when you’re in action.
It’s when you’re sitting still twiddling your thumbs that all the bad thoughts creep in and take over.
Want fewer bad thoughts? Spend more time in action instead of thumb-twiddling.
A second reader followed up my post and asked me to write more on taking action.
So here it is.
