I have heard it a couple of times before: "Chap, you’re a man of action." This is a curious response to my life. With a few exceptions though - isn’t anyone a human of action?
For the most part, people every day are executing on their various decisions. Taking serious action and progressing their lives forward.
What’s so interesting is that I do not see myself as more actionable than the next person. The only difference is the ideas that I peel off an run with are riskier, more complex, and have more possible benefits.
I simply believe in myself and the people around me. This allows their ideas to get legs and make progress themselves.
