Seth Godin's recent blog post really stirred me up. He's talking about how a lot of people want to 'have done' things but not as many want to actually 'do' the same things. (Witness me and my 'I want to have knitted a sweater even though I don't want to knit' situation.)
Of course, it applies to bigger things as well. I want to sell my books and have them available for everyone, but am I actively doing as much as I need to do to make that happen? Even the parts I don't LIKE doing?
He ends with a great line: "Getting your ducks in a row is not nearly as powerful as actually doing something with your duck."
Too often I think I worry about how my ducks look, and how I look arranging them (not how I physically look, but how I appear to be doing). Aardvark is my main duck right now, and I'm not doing as much as I could do.
What 'duck' are you re-arranging instead of actively working with, and how can you fix that this week?
