"I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do." Leonardo da Vinci

The old proverb 'strike when the iron is hot' brings to mind the image of a blacksmith plying his trade over a red-hot forge. Hot and sweaty, he knows that when it's time to strike, he must move. Should he delay in shaping the iron when it is hot and pliable, the metal will quickly cool and harden. And the opportunity will be lost.

When the time is right, he must be ready - and then act - without hesitation.

This same premise applies to life. When the time is right, you need to move. You need to act. You need to strike boldly, swiftly, decisively. If you fail to strike while the iron is hot, there's a good chance you'll lose your momentum.

And lose your opportunity.

"He who wants, but doesn't act, is a pest." William Blake

Sometimes you're not ready to pull the trigger when the timing is right. Perhaps you are too timid to act. Maybe you are afraid of failing or following through. Whatever the reason, you procrastinate and put things off.

You tell yourself, "I'll get around to it in a little later." And while you may have every intention of getting around to it, you don't.

Days turn into weeks, weeks into months and years. Sooner becomes later, and later becomes never. Instead of doing, you dawdle. Instead of acting, you delay. Before long, the iron turns cool, then cold as one opportunity after another falls by the wayside.

"The present moment is all you ever have." Eckhart Tolle

Life is fleeting. Today is here and then... POOF... it is gone; along with the promise and potential it had to offer; gone with the wind, gone for good, gone and not coming back. That, my friend, is a cold, hard, sobering fact.

When opportunity shows its face, you've got to go, you've got to move; youve got to grab it with both hands before it gets away. Right then, right there, on the spot, at once, in the blink of an eye. No waiting, no hesitating, no putting off or postponing. No dilly-dallying around; no hemming and hawing. You need to snare while it's there.

When you get a chance worth taking, take it. When you come across a great idea, pursue it. When opportunity knocks, open the door. Don't sit around. Don't twiddle your thumbs. You need to kick it into high gear and GO.

"Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking." William Butler Yeats

Today presents untold opportunities waiting to be explored; opportunities that could change things around, opportunities that could change your life. Are you going to chase them? Pursue them? Seize them? Embrace them? Or let them go?

John D. Rockefeller said, "If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success." Will you strike out on your own - or simply strike out?

Today is your chance to strike it big, to strike it rich; to strike while the iron is hot. It's a chance to strike a chord in your heart, strike a blow to your problems, to strike oil in your backyard.

In order to do something, you've got to, well... do something. Do it now. Do it with purpose and passion. Do it with like your hair is on fire. Strike with power, strike with authority, strike like you mean it. Strike like a big slammin' sledgehammer that packs a punch - and keep swinging for all you are worth.

And make some fireworks of your own.

Power Precision: Strike. Strike now. Strike often. And keep the iron hot.
