Lou Ludwig Success Tips: The Difference Between a Doer and a Talker

The Difference Between a Doer and a Talker

 

The Difference Between a Doer and a Talker

The way to get started is to quit talking, and begin doing.”

Walt Disney 1901 – 1966, American entrepreneur, Animator,

Producer, Screenwriter

   

 

 

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

The difference between a doer and a taker

 

The talker may sound good . . . . talk a big game . . . . But talkers are prone to continue to talk . . . . and rarely will take action on their thoughts.

 

What a talker will do is to make excuses for their lack of action . . . . and use the blame card for the reason that they can’t get started. A talker life . . . . is a life of smoke and mirrors with very little substances.

 

A doer is a difference type of person . . . . They are the path finders in life . . . . . they will go where other people have not gone before . . . . and do what others won’t do.

 

A doer has a vision for their life and goals. There vision of their life burns brightly in their thinking . . . . and becomes their purpose.

 

Doers know what they want to achieve . . . . and what they will have to do to achieve a successful outcome. They are also committed to their vision . . . . and will focus their time and efforts to make their vision become a reality.

 

When a doer encounters an obstacles they see it as a challenge that needs to be conquered . . . . and does everything in their power to find a successful solution.

 

A doer will verbalize what the want to achieve . . . . and then take the actions to achieve their goals. The talker will talk a big game . . . . and won’t take action.

 

The difference between a doer and a talker . . . . is the talker continues to talk . . . . and wait . . . . while the doer is doing.

Hello Lou Ludwig,  I quit talking as much in the last 4 years and now just do it and get the things done I need to do!

Hi Lou,  This is a great blog.  The differences are so real and easy for anyone to see except for the talker.  They never seem to realize what they need to do.  Have a great 2017!

Good morning, Lou -- actions always speak louder than words.

Good morning, Lou Ludwig . I didn't know Walt Disney made that comment, but it's so true. All the planning, ideas, and talk are meaningless until action is taken.

This is so true, Lou!  It's sort of like attending seminars and learning all sorts of great information; but it becomes useless, if you don't use/implement anything.

There sure is a BIG difference between a doer and a talker. That is precisely why I quick serving on a Board! Some people just love, love, love to hear themselves talk and when you try to say something, they talk for 30 minutes or more on what you just said in 30 seconds.

Lou, Absolutely as talk is easy and fast .. Stop just talking and take positive actions..

Sometimes, we have to make a conscious effort to be doers before we are talkers or let the talking motivate us to be doers.

Why don't the links to the other pages load anymore on mobile?That's a little annoying right now, not very but just a bit.

Thank you very much, Lou, for sharing this quote selection and this important reminder for all of us.

Lou I love  Doers and do not care much for talkers...loved your interpretation:

A doer has a vision for their life and goals. There vision of their life burns brightly in their thinking . . . . and becomes their purpose.

Nobody had vision like Walt Disney had vision....what an inspiring man!

Good morning Lou Ludwig,

I just caught this post when Roy Kelley re-blogged it and you knocked it out of the park on this one! Actions always speak louder than words. You are right talkers keep on talking and rarely follow through.

Those that talk about it the most tend to do it the least. Nice article!
