It isn’t enough to just think about
doing something. You have to follow through

Maybe you really intended to do the right thing, but life isn’t about what you’re meant to do, it’s about what you do. No matter what you’re intentions, if you don’t act on them, then you haven’t really done anything.

Other people don’t know what’s in your head. And even if you tell them you hope to do something nice, it won’t really mean much if you don’t follow through. In fact, if you get in the pattern of saying you’ll do something, and then not doing it, you will lose trust and will come to be known as unreliable.
People generally don’t remember your words that much, or even your actions. They will remember how you made them feel. And if they always felt let down or disappointed, that is what they will take away from your relationship.

Be who you want to be, and follow through with your good intentions. Then you will be remembered as the person who was always there for a friend, or the hard worker people could always count on at work. It is far preferable to be a person of favorable action than a person who thought about doing responsible things.
