To do or not to do: both are something to consider

There is a moment between thought and action. It is good to ponder, to research, to think. And yet, we reach a point where it is time to put those things behind us and act. To do.

For truthfully, to decide not to act is also a decision to do something.

It is a decision to do nothing.

What are you pondering today that requires action? People fear action for it means accountability and surely, none of us is perfect. And yet, I can think of nothing worse than a person watching a drowning child and doing nothing. Yet, we all see things before us that require our action.

Decide to do something. Doing nothing is also doing something and to do nothing is to refuse accountability and responsibility for something that is yours to act upon.

What will you do?
