Action Vs Non-Action

I believe that there are instance in which one tend to lament on the circumstance in which he/she made the decision at the prevailing point of time. One may regret on the decision and think of the circumstance in which he/she should not have taken any action. One will not have to bear the possible consequence of the action which he/she had taken. I have a different view. I feel that action is better than non-action.

This beats better than doing nothing at all. No action is akin to waiting for the durian to drop from the sky. This is indeed a reactive approach. Action is equivalent to making the decision and gaining the experience along the way. I will like to add one more things to try the different style of work. Of course, I am not referring to the works which include illegal activities. The same also applies to the work which may include grey area in which there is little differentiation between legal and illegal things. I quote one example of bike-sharing scheme in Singapore. It originated as a fresh and entrepreneurial idea and eventually ended up as closed-down due to unknown reason (the details not reported in the media). This case is currently probed by the Authority. An example of crash got sound. Is it worthwhile for the starter of such business to start off with such plan? It depends on various individuals. If this business turned up to be a success, people will use it as an excellent example of business success. Afterall, it is a learning experience for the people involved.
