Thinking is easy. You could be sitting on the couch and watching Netflix or browsing social media and have your mind be elsewhere.
Thinking about all the things you wish you could do, like take better care of yourself.
I guess doing something unproductive while thinking of something productive is a form of “multitasking,” but it’s a pretty useless activity at the end of the day.
Switching to learning & thinking may seem more productive, but too much of that is also useless at some point.
You can read books, articles, research papers, listen to podcasts all you want and amass a wealth of knowledge, but none of that really matters if it’s not converted into action.
How useful is a hydroelectric power plant inside of a dam if the water on one side never flows through to the other? Not very.
Doing is hard.
Doing is also the only way to produce results.
Knowing the “top 10 things to do for whatever” doesn’t matter if you can’t even execute on the first one.
Stop thinking (so much). Start doing (something).
