Are you a Doer, Planner or Both

Are You A Doer or Do You Plan To Do

Ever met those that just do?

Ever met those that plan to do?


The doers get an idea/plan and do.

The planners plan and keep planning, waiting for the perfect plan.

I can relate to both.

I have lots of plans that have been rewritten and if I had just started somewhere along the way I would actually know if it worked or not!  I have quite a few exercise plans that have never been started.

On a whim I decided to take a photo a day and have been doing that for over two years now.

My photo a day project has morphed into many different things. I’ve learned far more about photography by just starting the project! My photo a day project has taught me lots about just doing. Sometimes I have a get an image, the clock is winding down on the day! Even if I don’t have a tripod or a flash unit, I have to figure it out. Somedays I’m not happy with my image for the day, but I post it anyways. What I’ve discovered is that often my best received images are the ones that I had to just do! As I look back over my images I can see growth from doing.

So why is it easy to just do some things and others it’s easy to keep planning?

I’ve also been planning this post for awhile now, pondering whether or not it’s worth posting as countless books have been written on this topic. Finally got tired of planning and decided to hit the publish button.

Nike has been telling us for 30 years to “Just do it!”
