Make a Plan, Get TAN Now – Take Action Now

As an entrepreneur, think about what you do to make the world a better place.



Make a plan and TAN.  TAN means, Take Action Now. We all have things we want to accomplish, goals we would like to reach and journeys we would like to make. There is one thing stopping us, a refusal to TAN, take action now.

Future articles will deal with:

* using Mindmaps to TAN

* using Vision Boards to TAN

* using Accountability groups to TAN


I have never met a person without a dream. Of course, we do not all share the same dream, but everyone has a dream. The world is divided into people who TAN and reach their dreams and those who refuse to TAN and don’t reach their dreams. If you are a person who does not take action and does not move towards a dream, a goal, a plan, then you have no justification to complain about the action and the results of a person who does TAN. Let’s look at the following example. People who are basketball fans often talk about the poor foul shot percentage Shaquille O’Neal. I think that only 50% of his foul shot attempts were good. I cannot complain about his percentage, because he TANned. He took action and played in the NBA and thus was around to make foul shots in the NBA. I did not take action towards playing in the NBA so the number of foul shots I have made in NBA games is zero.

Here is a riddle to help explain why you need to TAN: There are five birds sitting on a telephone wire when half of them decide to fly off to Florida. So, how many birds are left on the telephone wire? The answer is five. Why, because deciding to do something is not the same as Taking Action Now and actually doing something.

You must Take Action Now because sitting on your butt will not get done the things that need doing. For those of you who have been planning to go back to college for the past few years. How has the planning and sitting on your butt thing been working out for you? If you are sitting on the couch planning and not Taking Action Now, you will still be planning to go back to college two years from now. If you are serious about actually going back to college rather than just thinking about going back to college then you must Take Action Now. You must get up, get a college application package and look at the requirements for admission. Then start Taking Action Now to meet those requirements for admission. So what, it is hard. So what it will take a long time. Time will pass whether you are Taking Action Now or sitting and thinking and planning to take action one day. The difference is if you TAN, you will be closer to reaching your goals.

You must Take Action Now because you should be the driver of your life’s train. When you sit back and let happen whatever will happen, you are in the passenger seat of your life. In life, just like in a car, the passenger has very little impact on the road traveled. When you don’t Take Action Now, you are sitting down and when you should be standing and walking. When you sit back and just let life happen rather than Taking Action Now, you are like a person who brings a knife to a gunfight. You are ill-prepared and out-of-place.

In conclusion, it is incumbent upon you to show up like a grown-up and Take Action Now. So, the question for you this magnificent day is what are you going to TAN (Take Action Now) to today?

  1. Brandi Jeter you want me to check in and make sure you do something you need to do, and possibly nag you until you get it done? Let me see if I can stretch my mother of four skills to handle that. hahahahahaha

  2. I am glad you liked the new design. I looked through hundreds of templates and tried out dozens before finding this one. I kept my old header because my blog has done so well since Brandi Jeter did it for me. I think it will follow me forever!

  3. I am looking forward to it also! I learned about vision boarding at the PowerUp Weekend conference. Dr. Cutts who gave the seminar did a great job and got me excited about it. She was even kind enough to send me information later. When you get yours done, be sure to share.

  4. I can’t wait for the vision board post(s) I’ve been meaning to really do one for SO long! My TAN item is to get control of my finances again, life has thrown me a bit off kilter and I need to regain balance fast!

  5. My TAN item is getting my email in order. I have 5 different accounts, and just got some great advice on how to better manage them. Doing that will give me so much extra time in my life. Going to TA…NOW on that. Please be my accountability person on this and check in on me tomorrow? Please???
