If we wait until we’re ready we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives.
A card I bought in Santa Fe.
I’m notorious for having a good idea a minute and never executing. Well, maybe not every minute. But I get lots of ideas for new ventures that turn out to be all talk and no action.
It looks like things are changing, though. I’m starting a business, one which will allow me to be of loving service to people in need of … support. It’s an idea I’ve had for a few years. And I’m moving smartly down the path of implementation.
What’s different this time is that it’s come from my heart and my soul. It doesn’t hurt that I’m being pushed along by forces greater than I, either.
Now, given that I’m in a tough and time-consuming course of study right now, I could easily say “I’m not ready!” Anyone would agree.
This time, though, it seems clear that if I want until I’m ready I’ll still be waiting when it’s time for me to leave the earth. So, planning, implementation, execution are all in progress.
I won’t tell you anything about it until I launch in the new year. A website devoted to this venture will be a big part of it and so will products and services. No, this blog and website won’t go away.
What I do want to say is this: no matter what you want to do–get fit, finish college, find a new job, go to culinary school–if you wait until you’re ready you’ll be waiting the rest of your life.
So, as my favorite old Nike slogan says, JUST DO IT!
