    Hi Barrie,
    Great article on taking immediate action.
    I liked the example you used with a new client.
    Using a new skill you learned you got his business to show up on the first page of google in only 2 days. his local listing in only 3 hours after verification in google business in position 2’above one of his competitors who had been listed for a while.
    That is taking action! Great stuff.

    “Remember, when learning new skills you should take action TODAY on what you learn. You will never know where it can take you as you learn more and gain more experience”

    Nothing more needs to be said. Amen

    Oh Barrie, this is so true. Never wait for the perfect moment because the moment will never be perfect. In life we just have to get on with it and, as you rightly say, take action now. I am a risk taker, I do things first and think later mostly! I know a lot of people are not as cavalier as that, but the message is very much the same, just do it!

    Enjoy the journey!

    Hi Barrie,
    If you take the time to learn something new, you have an “edge” because most people won’t take the time to learn something new … right? So that’s the way to do it, and congratulations om getting a new client!

    You are an expert in SEO, barrie, and understand that to remain that way you have to keep learning. There is always something new, especially in the online world. I don’t think we should jump into action with little or no knowledge, which is what I did when starting online marketing, but there comes a time when the best learning comes from doing. (I keep telling myself that!).

    There are some projects I haven’t even started on because they seem too big. It’s Time for me to break them down into manageable parts.

    HI Barrie

    Learning happens everyday and as you shared, one can miss an opportunity if fails to learn and take action now. I love the example that you gave and it shows that action speaks better. Thank you for sharing. Take Care

    Hi Barrie

    Great post and a great idea!

    it is really the best way to learn! you now have not only cemented a new client but you have cemented a new tool in your arsenal of tools to help your clients with.

    now take it to a coaching class or turn it into a lesson on your blog!

    Learn do teach! it is how they train doctors as at each step of the process your brain and body must take on more of the information.

    Putting that one into practice; this week, starting today!

    To Your Success!

      Thanks Mary. This technique is a little more than writing a blog post. I will be doing some videos on this.

    Hello Barrie, you’ve got a great blog running here and I have falling in love with your craft and style already!
    So I read your post with keen interest and trust me I can immediately relate with your personal stories of taking action.

    I am a victim of the “Do it Later” syndrome and I must admit that this kills creativity and subsequently drain life out of results, even great results.

    It’s why I love that powerful quote by Jane Austin that reads something like “Deter not to evening that which the morning can accomplish”.

    Really, Barrie, I found out in the short time I have spent on this heart, especially in this side of the world (Nigeria), that you’ve got to act and act fast on your dreams and ideas, else they become obsolete.

    You know I’ve heard about products or things selling for a certain cheap price rise and suddenly sour high in price over a period of weeks that I couldn’t afford to buy them. Ever experience that?

    I have many times and most times it’s always the case of pushing my buying that product to a later time other than not having the money to buy it.

    And can you imagine how many years have come and gone since I have written my first book and up till now, it’s yet to see the light of the day – that’s sad and I am now more than before, willing to have that book published, thanks to your powerful message of hope and light.

    You should have a good week ahead mate!

    Oh less I forget, how come the images are in twos? That’s pretty new to me actually. 🙂

      Thanks a lot Sam. I don’t know why the images appear twice. It’s a quirk of the theme I think. 😀

    Such a great point Barrie! This is a real hot button issue for those of us who work in the personal development field. people attend seminars, read self-help books, then set aside what they’ve learned for when they can get around to it. then in a month or two they get the bug again, grouse about how the other stuff never worked, and buy another book. most of the advice actually does work – but only if you take action! Thanks for the inspiration. 🙂

      I agree that many people who attend the seminars or read the books don’t take action on what they learn. Then they start to winge and complain that this is “rubbish” and doesn’t work! Learn, take action and see where you go from there.
