I use to think that action always outweighed talk, now I am finding that they are equal in importance for numerous reasons.
1) If you say you’re going to do something you should follow through with action and fulfill the words. 2) Your actions should match your words; for example, if you say you will work with others on an issue/ problem then you truly need to work with others to solve instead of carry your own bias (politicians are a good example of this one. 3) As much as I love action, the art of follow through; I understand now more than ever how much you can learn and grow from communicating and listening.
I still believe you have to have a balance between the two, and too much talk can be exactly that, too much talk. But I certainly see the importance of both talk and action in my life now, how about you?
