Taking Action – Making Your Life Count

A viral video caught our eye yesterday. Nike launched the FuelBand a while back; it is a band that you wear on your wrist that studies your activity level throughout the day. Monitoring the steps you take and the calories you burn, helping you to keep to your goals.

The video is about this filmaker who blows Nike’s advertising budget by running away and travelling the world. There are many inspiring quotes in the video that make you want to take action. Crazy as it seems it is all in line with Nike’s product, that encourages you to take action.

My favourite quote from the video is: You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough – Mae West

So if you have that passion or an idea to do something, just go do it. Start by taking the smallest steps to make it happen, BUT START TODAY!!! Write that idea down on a piece of paper, breakdown what resources you need and how are you going to go about it. Then bit by bit, put everything together and embark on that journey.

In the end it is not the years in your life that count, but it is the life in your years – Abraham Lincoln.

Have a great weekend.

P.S.: Nike, if you have more budget to let us blow on travelling the world, we are every ready to go 😀
