Vitamins, Oprah, and the Importance of Taking Action Right Away

Harrison Barnes | DATED: 03-26-2015

In this article Harrison discusses why it is important to take action right away. For most people it is much more fun and interesting to sit around and dream and think about how they are going to improve, than it is to actually go out and make major improvements in their lives. The problem is very few people ever follow the course of action. It is like this for a great many of us. We would rather think and dream than act. The key to making the most of your career and life is making sure you act on what you are learning. Anyone can talk about, read about, or dream about doing something. The key is being able to take action and do it.

The post Vitamins, Oprah, and the Importance of Taking Action Right Away appeared first on Harrison Barnes.
