Slogans, Quotes or Mottos Lauding Action Over Overthought/Overplanning?
April 3, 2009 3:25 PM Subscribe
I'm looking for mottos, slogans, or quotes that are short enough to be easily remembered, that are meant to spur someone to take action
towards their goals, and/or that warn against overthinking and overplanning and staying in your head – in other words, that laud the merits of action over thought. I've already thought of "just do it" (which is the precise sentiment I'm looking for), but it is so
overplayed that it doesn't have much meaning any longer. Any sentiment of any length is appreciated, but ideally it would be something that easily sticks in your mind.
