Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Pay Attention to What People Do

Pay Attention to What People Do

Pay Attention to What People Do

The older I get, the less I pay attention to

what people say or think or hope.

I notice what they do, how they

live and they work for.”

Robert Fulghum, Author  


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

Pay attention to what people do


People can talk about what they are going to do . . . . talking without backing it up with focused effort has very little value.


People can plan for what they want to do . . . . until they act on their plan nothing happens.


People can dream about what they want to do . . . . when you want to live your dreams . . . . you have to create goals and action to make it happen.


People can have great hope for what they want to do . . . . hope is a vision of what can be . . . . turn your hope into a goal . . . . and you create a pathway to live it.


It’s not what people say . . . . it’s what they do to successful achieve what they want to achieve that counts.


Talk without taking the actions to achieve what they want is a waste of your time . . . .  energy . . . .  and ensures negative results.


When you want to achieve it . . . . you’re going to have to take the actions to get it done.


It’s not what people say, it’s what they do to create a successful outcome that counts.


Pay attention to what people do . . . . their actions is a reflection of the directions that they’re moving in.

Good morning, Lou -- this quote can be and has been interpreted in so many ways -- the message is always the same to me.   Actions speak louder than words.

Lou,  I think this quote works both ways. As you get older you also start to see these things in yourself. In the past year I've realized that I spend a lot of time "thinking" about things and researching them.  Now I have little reminders all around to spend less time thinking and more time doing.

It's amazing to me how people can "see" what is going on right in front of them yet "ignore" everything

Hello Lou,  As always interesting,  I can see this going both way but I see what you are saying.

Actions do speak louder than words, but... what comes out of the mouth can show us the condition of ones heart -- IF we pay attention to what is said. :)
