Lou Ludwig Success Tips: The Huge Cost of Inaction

The Huge Cost of Inaction

Motivational Power Quote


The Huge Cost of Inaction

“There are risks and costs to a program of action.

But they are far less than the long-range risks

and costs of comfortable inaction.”

John F Kennedy 1917 - 1963, 35th President of the United States


As I see it. . . . . . . .

The huge cost of inaction


A person with a proactive plan that takes a calculated risk . . . . has a strategic business advantage over the person who takes no action.


By taking action on your plane you’re taking control of the condition . . . . with inaction the condition controls you.


The huge cost of inaction . . . . multiplies and far out weights the calculated risks of taking action.

I have to laugh reading the quote. I can remember my dad saying, "do something, even if it wrong". That was his way of speaking about inaction.

And who better than a politician, JFK, to remind us of the cost of inaction. Politicians are famous for this, especially when the action could cost them votes.

Lou, if you want a larger comfort zone, you can't be afraid to leave it to expand it! Enjoy your day!

Lou, like Richard, I was thinking this quote totally describes our current politicians.      We don't have a choice, if we have no action, no business - out of business!
