I know the word “violently” is off-putting to some, so feel free to substitute “passionately,” “aggressively,” or even “haphazardly” in your mind instead.
A similar quote you might like is, “Imperfect action is better than perfect inaction.”
I still prefer General Patton’s, though, because I never see myself as being in a state of inaction.
I can easily convince myself that all my mental plotting and planning is actually taking action, when it’s really not.
But I can never convince myself that all the gears turning in my head are anything close to actually “executing a plan,” so General Patton gets my butt in gear — in keeping with his well-deserved reputation.
