Taking action quickly is the most important thing that you can do to accomplish your goals. Sometimes it seems scary or intimidating. It can also be hard to know where to start. So, here are some tips on how to take action so that you can feel like you’re getting stuff done.

Action brings clarity

Taking action allows you to test results. It brings validation to what you’re doing and you eliminate some of the confusion (or at least options) in your brain, which creates more clarity on the direction you should be heading.

Action helps manifestation

Your brain truly can attract the reality that you desire. But attracting the opportunities is only the first step: you need to take action on the opportunities that come to you. The more opportunities you take action on, the more opportunities will come your way. It’s a positive cycle of manifestation and taking action.

Schedule action

Put your action items on the calendar and make time for them so that you are forced to take action on it. If that’s not working, try breaking it into smaller parts and accomplishing bite-sized tasks over time instead of everything at once. In addition, make yourself accountable to someone else so that they can keep you on track!

Take baby steps

The best way to take action quickly is to start with the tiniest, easiest thing you can do. These baby steps will snowball and you will end up accomplishing a lot, without it feeling like a giant project.

“We’re go-getters. We’re making things happen. We’re changing the world. We’re dream chasers, and these are the types of people that take messy and massive action.”

Main Takeaways

  • Action cures fear. It’s hard to take action if we’re letting our doubts and fears control us. But taking action actually helps melt away the fear.
  • Our brains are powerful. We can attract what we want, but we also have to take action to make these things happen.
  • No matter what we do, we’re not going to be perfect. It’s better to take messy action than no action at all.
