Do not wait; the time will never be “just right.” Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.
— Napoleon Hill
We’ve all fallen into the trap of thinking that we aren’t quite ready to begin because we need more information or we need to meet the right people. We might think that the plan we’ve come up with is not complete: it needs tweaking, it needs the details worked out—even the teensy tiny ones.
These reasons have us completely convinced that we really can’t start right now.
It’s important to recognize that we’ll never have all the information or have all the details worked out. That’s because we can’t really anticipate what we’ll need as we get farther along in our journey—things never turn out to be what we thought they’d be. And, the timing is always going to be awkward and inconvenient.
This means that after doing our due diligence and have a reasonable plan then it’s time to begin, no matter what.
Your homework today is to take the next step. Break the step into pieces and break those into parts and break those into little bits. Choose a little bit and do it.
You don’t have to take a big flying leap; you don’t have to be going at 100 miles an hour. It’s less intimidating and less overwhelming if you take small little bits of steps and move at a slower pace.
Just take the first step, then the next one, then the one after that. Keep going!
You can do it!
I’m proud of you!
Your Friend and Pep Pal,
