Start Walking (Part 3)

Just do it.

This tagline of Nike struck me once again and it never failed to keep me going.

Just do it. Start walking.

In the middle of a chat with Khoa Bui, I asked, “So you are a trainer at…?”

“Yes. It’s one of my corporate training gigs,” he remarked.

(Khoa Bui is an international speaker, author, and entrepreneur. Check him out at I’ll tell you more of this big guy as I’ll know him more.)

“Oh, wow! Great! I want to do training, too,” I exclaimed.

“You should. What type?”

I held my breath. He is right. That is a question I must answer.

I told him in reply, “I’m still looking into what specific type. You see, I am a CPA but I do not want to stuck myself in front of my PC preparing financial reports and all that.”

Shortly, he answered with a smile, “Cool, man!”

Then he shouted, “DO IT!”

He did not actually shout at me but I think I should shout it to myself and to everyone who wants to do something that they are passionate about. “DO IT!”

Just do it. It’s the thing I am talking about in my posts Start Walking and Start Walking Part 2.

While I was doing some exercise to sweat out the stress from my 8-5 day job, I asked myself, “Am I doing something to pursue this as one of my passions? Did I start walking? Or should I command myself to DO IT!?”

Yes. I am. I started walking. I am doing it with some quick strides while mostly with baby steps. There should be nothing wrong with that.

Just do it. Start walking even with baby steps, and when we are warmed up, we can take quick strides and eventually, run!

Later on, I will be sharing more on these quick strides and baby steps I am doing.

For now, ask yourself, “Am I doing something to pursue my passions? Did I start walking? Or should I command myself to DO IT!?”

Come on. Contemplate on this and start walking.
