Okay, I don’t normally quote sportswear ads – I’ve never been what you’d describe as ‘sporty’.

“Stop thinking, start doing!”But on this occasion I decided to make an exception.

I was thinking about resolutions and saw the quote above at the nearby mega-mall on a poster and it struck me as a personal imperative – oi you: stop thinking, start doing!

I’ve missed too many opportunities by saying things (to myself mostly) like “I’ll think about that…” instead of just getting off my backside and doing something about it.

As many of you know, I’m in a transitional phase having left Fancyapint? in December (not my idea, but I’m not going there) and I keep having odd flashes of things I could do now. Yes, I have to get some kind of job, but there’s lot of other things I could be doing, too.

So, carrying on the theme of resolutions for 2012, I’m going to use this as my mantra this year. I’m going to be doing some of those things I’ve spent too long thinking about. They’re not all going to work, but some of them will and I’m looking forward to finding out which is which.

And no, I’m not going to tell you about them just now; you’ll have to wait like everyone else.

What are you doing today? Stop thinking, start doing!
