Deciding or doing

If you see 10 birds on a wire and five decide to fly, how many are left?

The answer to this riddle is 10.

“Deciding and doing are not the same,” concludes Dr. Mehmet Oz in an article “Goal Power” in Time magazine, September 17, 2012.

The riddle reminds us of one of our favorite quotes.

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it,” Goethe said. “Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”
