Initiative

Until one is committed there is always hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. COncerning all acts of inititative and creation there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans. The moment one moves, then providence moves too. Multitudes of things occur to help that which otherwise could never occur. A stream of events issues from the decision, raising to one’s favour all manner of unforeseen acccidents, meetings, and material assistance which no one could have dreamed would come their way: “Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”
W N Murray; The Scottish Himalayan Expedition – last two lines commonly attributed to Goethe
