I don't remember where I got this, but I like it. It was in the context of software development, but it applies to a lot of life:

"Momentum builds on itself -- just start. Do whatever you can. Draw a user interface. Write a spec. Make something, anything, that people can see and touch and try. A prototype is worth ten thousand words. Once you start moving, you will find that people start to carry you along."

Words of wisdom. We always fear failure, but we discount opportunity costs ... the cost of not doing it is the cost of missed opportunity.

Sign I saw in somone's office:
Do it. Do it right. Do it right now.

Tom Peters: "Have a bias for action"

Nike: "Just Do It"

Larry the Cable Guy: "Get 'er done!"
