There are three frogs on a lily pad. One made a decision to jump. Now, how many frogs are left on the lily pad? Three. One only made the decision to jump. It didn’t actually jump. Taking the action is what counts.
I’ve been thinking for a long time about the decision to jump. I was afraid, as anyone would be. But I realized that whenever I make a decision, I execute it.
I think the same should go for the decision of jump. I’m not saying it’s easy. I’m saying it’s necessary. Essential for a fruitful outcome.
The decision is a two-dimensional phenomenon. Execution of the plan is a three-dimensional phenomenon. In reality, it cannot be understood in two dimensions since most human actions are not related to events projected into time or space. It requires one’s conscious effort and skill but also intelligence (in my case that has been defined as high intellectual aptitude).
