Shut-Up and Do It Yourself | Leadership Freak

Shut-Up and Do It Yourself | Leadership Freak:

"I was explaining how to do something when a close friend said, “Do it yourself.”

I have a love-hate relationship with my life-long friend Tim. (Mostly love.) But, he got me thinking about organizations and teams that are burdened with “geniuses” who talk too much and do too little.

Years ago, I taught computer classes. Students listened with confidence until I said, “OK, you do it.” When it comes time to take action, confidence wilts to confusion and doubt.

You-do-it moments, separate the talkers from the doers."
