The critical ingredient is
getting off your butt and doing something.
It's as simple as that.
A lot of people have ideas,
but there are few who decide
to do something about them now.
Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today.
The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.

Many of us are still enjoying the holiday weekend and avoiding work, and of course I celebrate that. I encourage you to take the rest of today to relax and kick back. Starting tomorrow, however, I dare you to jump up, get to work or school, choose a project that needs to be tackled, and DO. Think of the next 5 days, or 5 hours, or even 5 minutes as a most valuable and precious opportunity to move away from "thinking about it" and zoom towards becoming a DOer!

I dedicate this issue of Ripples to Marvin Becker, 1942-2008, who was most definitely a DOer. I was glad to know you, Marv, and I promise I will stop thinking about learning how to play sheephead and just DO it!

Paul's Pick
Join Me
by Danny Wallace (Penguin, NY). This is an easy and fun read! Danny tells his tale of posting a newspaper ad that asks, quite simply, “Join Me!” Dozens, and then hundreds, and yes THOUSANDS of people eventually join him before he has decided exactly WHY he wants them to join him. I don’t think it will spoil the story to tell you that he ends up creating a “karma army;” you really need to read HOW and WHY he makes his decisions. Ripply, indeed!
