Begin. Now.


Starting something new is an exciting prospect. The mere thought of starting something new is fresh, vibrant and filled with hope.

Starting something shouldn’t be a state of mind where you endlessly wait for all the signs to be in your favor before you begin. Some are trapped by the thought of starting something. They feel that starting something means that every little thing must be in place, every little detail should point toward perfection, and success should be guaranteed.

The truth is, starting something does not guarantee success itself. Do not wait for all the stoplights in a 5 mile street to turn green before you begin. Just decide to start, lean into the task, and do it. You will learn what you have to learn along the way.

Success will sooner come to those who start earlier, rather than the ones who wait for guarantees and perfection before even beginning.
