It’s Your Time. Get Amped & Execute

April 7, 2010
By Lisa Barone in Online Marketing

We all talk a bit too much. We talk about the work we have to do, the new things we want to try when we get the time, the obstacles in our way. Sometimes the talk is helpful. It helps us to prioritize and plan and gets things in line so we can execute. But at some point we talk so we don’t have to act. We talk so we have something to do when we’re not doing the things we’re supposed to be doing. We talk as an excuse for inaction.

Let’s not do that today. Today you should get amped and start executing. Nail down that one thing you’ve been wanting to do, and go all Nike on it.

This is your time. Your competitor’s time is over. If you don’t believe me, let 5-year-old Joshua Sacco remind you. He helped the Red Sox earn a 9-7 comeback win from the Yankees on Sunday night.

Or if that didn’t light a fire under your ass, go read Rae’s post on Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda Success. Or maybe watch Gary V’s video on why he’s gonna spend this year reading, instead of talking and speaking. Imagine what you’d be doing right now if you executed this time last year and didn’t just talk about it. You probably wouldn’t be reading this blog post. I’m okay with that.

We weren’t all born to be baseball players, but that doesn’t mean we can’t create great things. If you’re not the one on your team who has trouble executing, send this to the person who does.
