Do you spend more time learning than you do using what you learn?
Do you believe that knowledge is power?
Having skills may be good but being know as an action taker just may be more of an asset for life and in business according to Gary.
Will is more important than can. It’s more important than talent, too. A moderately skilled person who will is able to outperform a gifted person who won’t.
Those who will thrive on activity and challenge.
Those who will don’t need to be pushed – their natural state is in motion. They find things to do. They find people to serve. They can smell opportunities and they see things from angles that the ‘cans’ don’t know exist.
Those who will don’t wait for the perfect tool or the perfect opportunity. They say, “What the hell – let’s give it a shot!” They move forward and risk failure because they know that the only real failure is not trying.
Those who will don’t spend all their time planning. The perfect plan never materializes – and those who will know this. They forge ahead and plan for multiple contingencies along the way.
Skills can always be learned. But having the will to go after anything you want immediately will do far more for you than having knowledge that never gets put into action.
