Always default to action. Doing the wrong thing is better than nothing; doing nothing is itself a choice with consequences; those consequences are rarely good. Doing nothing means you don’t change, you stagnate, while the world around you moves forward; you are left behind.
Action does not have to be great. A small step leads to its own reward; reinforcement. Internal validation; that sense of accomplishment however small.
Take whatever action you can, even if it seems wrong. If it is wrong then you have gained experience from it. You have learned how not to act in the future.
Next time the action will not seem so daunting because you’ve tried it once.
The best motivation is, of course, success. It does not have to be great success. One more rep than last time means you have become stronger.
Blowing out after you get her number rather than failing at the approach means you are making progress.
Publishing a work, however rough, means you have stayed with something long enough to finish it.
Making a single dollar of your dreams helps you realize that what you want is, however hard, at least possible.

Consider this post as a small action to get me back on the path.
Tomorrow I shall have an announcement
