Taking Action versus Taking Notes
The headline itself is very self-explanatory.
Let’s do a quick exercise.
- Go back to all the notes that you have taken during the last event or conference or presentation that you attended.
- Of these notes, how many have you truly acted upon?
- Now go back to the previous event or presentation that you would have attended.
- How many of these notes have you acted on?
I bet not many. I am guilty of these too.
There is a huge gap between note taking and taking action. It’s called the Action Gap.
It’s time to reduce the gap.
