From the Back Cover
Have you got an itch
to start you own business, go to the North Pole, retrain, lose weight, get promoted, learn to play the ukulele? Or do you just have a nagging sense that there must be more to life?
If there is something you really want to do, but secretly fear you ll never do it, then you need this.
So scratch it
This is your kick in the pants.
To make your thing happen, you have to climb into the ring. You have to face your fears and move from talking to doing.
Of course, it s right and natural to have fears, but understanding them will keep you on top. And then you ll find that starting can instantly make things change. So say farewell to the status quo.
And that s the trick, you see. Simply start somewhere. Anywhere. But do it now.
For those working for others or for themselves, for those in love or out of love, for those who are artistic or scientific, the busy and the clock–watchers but mostly for those with ambition: This is what you need to start.
Waiting is futile. Starting is progress.
Sháá embrace fear without regret and through this book convincingly urges other to as well.

The best resolution anyone of us can make is: 'Stop Talking, Start Doing". This may sound simple but it is very profound and if applied with discipline and consistency, it will take us places. It will lead to a life of fulfillment, satisfaction and a "joie de vivre". Most of us are born procrastinators, we have this usual human tendency of putting off things, thinking that we will have plenty of time tomorrow or next week or next month or next year, and time just flies, and we never start.
We get sucked into the Fear-Regret-Greater Fear- Greater Regret- Depression cycle. This is so well highlighted in Shaa's book and it is a great message, motto and reminder for action. The more we delay "doing" due to irrational fear of the "unknown" or discomfort, we accumulate regret. And regret weighs more than fear, and the burden keeps increasing the more we just talk and talk and not do and do. And when we look behind, ten years have gone by and we are still stuck.
Stop Talking and Start Doing is really a kick in the Pants and the sooner you get that kick the better, you will save a lot of time, energy and more importantly regret.
So if you want to make a Resolution let it be Stop Talking - Start Doing, and I promise you, when you look back in December 2012, you would be proud of yourself.
Simple to read, well illustrated, well organised, very profound message.
Hats off to Shaa Wasmund who has written very powerful stuff at very young age and has achieved so much. And her secret is now revealed, she "STOPPED TALKING, STARTED DOING" from very early and she keeps doing.
