The critical ingredient is
getting off your butt and doing something.
It's as simple as that.
A lot of people have ideas,
but there are few who decide
to do something about them now.
Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today.
The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.

Many of us are still enjoying the holiday weekend and avoiding work, and of course I celebrate that. I encourage you to take the rest of today to relax and kick back. Starting tomorrow, however, I dare you to jump up, get to work or school, choose a project that needs to be tackled, and DO. Think of the next 5 days, or 5 hours, or even 5 minutes as a most valuable and precious opportunity to move away from "thinking about it" and zoom towards becoming a DOer!

I dedicate this issue of Ripples to Marvin Becker, 1942-2008, who was most definitely a DOer. I was glad to know you, Marv, and I promise I will stop thinking about learning how to play sheephead and just DO it!

Peace,
Paul

READ:
Ten Fun Things to Do Before You Die
by Sr, Karol Jackowski (Hyperion: NY) Originally a lecture by the Dean of Students at St. Mary’s College, this delightful and quick read has suggestions ranging from “Make Yourself Interesting,” to “Find a Place to Escape Reality” and while the list is fun, the stories are powerful. I scribbled on my copy, “This may be the most sacred book I have ever read.”
