Action always beats intention. Whether it's going to the gym, starting a business, requesting a raise or even asking someone out for coffee, intention doesn't cut it. You need to ACT. And the sooner the better because the longer you think about it, the more time you have to come up with excuses NOT to do it. So go for it. Make the phone call. ​Put on your workout clothes and get after it in the gym. Start writing a business plan. Barge into your boss's office and demand a raise. Okay maybe don't do that last one. But at least start writing down reasons why you deserve more money. Take action and watch your life greatly improve.
