Not just for Dads

Intentional Influence – Thoughts for Leaders and Fathers…and anyone who knows some!

It’s the thought that counts…NOT!

The other day I was in stop-and-go traffic with my family. We passed a vehicle with a foreign numberplate that had broken down on the side of the road. We started talking about how sad it is for them, how we’d love to help, how nice it would be if we were in that situation and someone would help us…
And then we drove on…

Almost subconsciously I mumbled “It’s the thought that counts”.

Then I thought about it…It’s the thought that counts…NOT!

A thought doesn’t feed anyone. A thought doesn’t comfort anyone. A thought doesn’t change anything in another person.

Action counts!

A thought makes ME feel better. Action makes someone else feel better!

It’s not the thought that counts. Action counts. Action makes the difference!

Stop thinking, start DOING!
