I Heard You, But I Can See You Too [Don’t Let Your Mouth Get Ahead of Your Actions]



We all have the best intentions.  I have to believe that. It keeps me sane.

However, in spite of our intentions, we have a tendency to say and believe things about ourselves that just aren’t true.

We say we’re committed to our job, but we haven’t done anything to improve our ability to get better at it in years.

We say we’re health conscious, but rarely work out and eat like shit most of the time.

We pontificate about the importance of risk and hustle to success but never incur any risk and barely hustle.

We’re quick to tell everyone on the Internet what we would do if it were our kid who fell into the gorilla cage or what we would do if it were us who was stopped by a cop and told to get out of the car, or if it were our kid who was transgendered, or what we would do if we won the lotto.  We’re all quick to know what we would do and what we believe. But we’re usually wrong.

Words and beliefs are very different than actions.

Your actions are speaking so loud, I can’t hear what you’re saying.

It’s time for a little less talk and a little more action.

I’m going to pay less and less attention to what people say, and more attention to what they do.  It’s time we see more and hear less or should I say do more and talk less.

Yeah, I  heard you, but I can see you too, and that’s all I care about.
