How many of us go to the pump every day and say to ourselves, "Put the gas in the car and go." We give the car what it needs - its fuel, its motivation - then we take off. Why don't we do that in our own lives? When we get a nugget of great information that takes us five minutes to digest, that is our fuel, our mental or emotional fuel to get things going. Yet we continue to hesitate and overthink things instead of just doing a quick “gas and go.”
Some people say, "Well, you can't just be impulsive." Well, I'm at the stage in my life where if I don't start doing the things I know I should, whether it be because they're in my strengths or because God told me to, I'm going to regret it. I don’t know about you, but I have enough regrets.
Right now, as I spend this summer with my family and working on our businesses, I’m ready to “gas and go.” I have the fuel and it’s time for opportunity to meet preparation.
Where are you? Are you thinking about gassing and going, or are you just thinking to yourself, "Eh, I'll think about it some more. Give it some time to marinate and just see what happens." If so, you're not like me. I am on the back half of life, almost 43 years old. I hope I can be 86 one day, and the only way I could do that is to gas and go, get what I need, make a move, take action. I'm going to be doing it all summer. Are you with me?
