“Action Creates Information”

Heard this quote from an interview with Bryan Armstrong, cofounder and CEO of crypto giant Coinbase. It’s a great play on “For every action there is an opposite or equal reaction.” But it’s totally true.

So many people are stuck in analysis paralysis mode or scared of making a decision. This is not an indictment, all of us do this. Whether it’s making an investment decision, asking someone out for a date or just doing something. This is the only way to move forward in your career, your business and your life. Period. We tend to be our own worst enemies and limit ourselves.

Yes, you have to be thoughtful and think things through. But in a fast changing and fast moving world, you are better off making the decision and executing, seeing how it works out and then adjusting. It’s about learning, seeing what is good and what is bad. So many of us hesitate and hold ourselves back. We all know it.

This is why Nike’s Motto “Just Do It” is so powerful. We should all make it our own daily call to action too.
