1. If you act, you will learn what works.

2. If you don’t act, you’ll never know if you are right or wrong.

3. Action attracts others to participate.

4. Action leads to reaction which could lead to a new direction.

5. Action yields insight.

6. If all you do is think, you have less to contribute.

7. Talking leads to speculation. Action leads to reality.
