Show Me The Doing

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 5:50 am

Jerry Maguire movie poster“Stop telling me what you say and start showing me what you do” is the line The Grasshopper presented to me shortly after I woke up.

“Telling” is the other global pandemic going on. There is so much of it around that you want to quarantine yourself away from those spouting it out.

Two quotes come to mind – one from Ralph Waldo Emerson and the other from an anonymous source.

Emerson said, “Who you are speaks so loudly I can’t hear what you are saying.”

Anonymous said, “Don’t let your alligator mouth overload your hummingbird ass.”

Sidebar: In answer to the hypothetical question, “Who would you like to have dinner with, living or dead?”, my answer would be “Anonymous.” He/she said so many profound things.

Now back to the telltale topic of not doing, I take my cue from the folks who follow this mantra: “Watch what they do.”

Brain science validates what the late Dr. Dave Dobson told us: “Words are the caboose on the choo-choo of life.”

Words, to be effective, have to be descriptive of what we have done, not what we’re going to do.

The reason the line from the movie “Jerry Maguire” is so impactful is because it’s so real. “Show me the money!”

I think it’s time for all of us to put blather on the back burner and serve up a heaping plateful of doing, instead of feeding people a line of shit.

All the best,
