Are You An Action-Taker?

A few years back I was at Ryan Deiss’ Ultimate List Building Bootcamp, which was amazing.

It was the first time I saw Keith Baxter speak and he had me writing notes at warp speed. It was a great presentation on traffic generation and link building.

One technique in particular stuck out to me. So that night in my hotel room I bought the software he recommended and put the the process to work.

It only took me an hour or so, but I took action nonetheless.

The next day I saw Keith talking to a small crowd that had gathered around him. I approached and when it fell silent I told Keith I put his plan in to action.

He looked right at me and said, “Good job. I bet you’re one of the only ones who will take action.”

And he was probably right.

Taking action is rare. That’s why the Ready Spaghetti challenge focuses on doing rather than learning.

I’m going to put several steps in to action.

Some of them may not work. Some of them will. And I’ll learn from it.

But I’ll do the learning AFTER I take action. I’ll learn from experience, the best kind of learning.

It’s not too late to join March’s Ready Spaghetti Challenge. If you’re thinking about it, why not join us now and leave a comment?
