Talker or Doer?

There's two kinds of people in this world, when you boil it all down. You got your Talkers and your Doers. Most people are just Talkers, all they got is talk. But when its all said and done... it's the Doers who change this world, and when they do that, they change us. And that's why we never forget them. So which one are you? Do you just talk about it? Or do you stand up and do something about it? Because believe you me, all the rest of it is just coffee house bullshit.

From Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day

Wow, what a great movie we watched last night. If you haven't seen Boondock Saints, try to find a copy of it from 1999. The sequel is almost as good, and great timing for Saint Patrick's Day.

I'm not going to spoil it for you all, but the new character Eunice Bloom, excuse me, Special Agent Eunice Bloom, makes this Man flick doable for us ladies. You can make it through to the end on this one, and even get lured into the story line.

I see all of you, break out your chalkboard paint, and write these huge quotes as part of your decor. This one has to be posted somewhere in mine. Somewhere large and out loud. He is a doer readers, not afraid of anything. He is a doer. I really need to tell you more about this.......we have been talking, and I have made some headway on the story. A little more research, and you'll be the first to hear it.

I will have to pick up the movie soon. I can see you made your quote big on your blog! I like it! I was going to say I would like to think I am a doer...but that doesn't sound right. I AM A DOER! Great post.

Have a great day!

I haven't seen this either...will include in the Netflix queue!

I like your quote a lot. I have to say as a salesperson, that I am a talker and a doer. I have to be able to talk the talk, but what makes someone a GREAT salesperson is to sell the idea and then follow it up with the action. Just my opinion.

Looking forward to the 'story'....

Hi! Just visiting you for the first time. You're gonna have to be one of my daily reads!
Re: Talker or Doer - The absolute worst - being the committee chair with more talkers than doers. Will absolutely wear you out! I think that's why I used to just "do everything myself" when I worked. Delegating is hard when you know they will talk about it but never do a good job. That's also why I began to loathe meetings - too much B.S. xoxo
