On doing, not saying

"What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The police cars in our town have the following graphic on their fenders: "Deeds not words." And every time I see one drive past, it makes me stop and think. Alongside Emerson's timeless quote, we're reminded of how important it is to set the tone with what we do.

As a writer, I can spin words six ways from Sunday, but my real impact on those around me starts and ends with what I do. Words can only go so far, apparently.

Your turn: So what are YOU doing - today and every day - to inspire others?

Granny always said, "Pretty is as pretty does". Actions do speak louder.
