You May Need to Consider Thinkers Annonymous
By George Chege
Have you heard about Alcoholics Anonymous? What about Gamblers Anonymous? These are voluntary organisations of people who abuse alcohol or are addicted to gambling. Participants meet weekly to share stories about their struggles to overcome addictions and in the process they encourage and inspire each other to quit the harmful habits.
It is my suggestion that we seriously need to start Thinkers Anonymous!
Every now and then, whenever a good business idea comes your way, instead of taking action you say to yourself, "let me think about it." Close friends have tried to introduce you to money saving clubs but too much thinking got in the way and you neither joined nor saved. Libraries and finance magazines abound with financial success strategies but you would rather think than act.
Do not think for a moment that I am against thinking in-toto. I agree It is necessary to weigh and consider matters before arriving at the best course of action. But i also acknowledge that it is not necessary to always get 100% of the facts to make a reasonably good decision.
General Colin Powell said if you are 70% confident about something, you can get into top gear and move ahead. If you insist on seeking 99% confidence, you will realize that 99% of the time you will be overtaken by events.
So today is a good time to examine your reason for inactivity. If you have gotten to the point where you would rather lie on your thinking couch for the duration it takes to do what you are thinking about, PLEASE STOP THINKING AT ONCE and dial the emergency number for Thinkers Anonymous!
