Stop Waiting

“However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?”


“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.”

Pablo Picasso

There’s mean reasons why you should wait on your idea (business, passion, dream, etc). It might not work. You may need more skills and experience to do it. You need to get your money right first. All these reasons are likely true.

But I would argue the reasons you shouldn’t wait far outweigh anything that’s stopping you. What if you go your entire life without doing the things you feel called to do?

It might not work — but who cares? What if it does? What if it doesn’t and it actually leads you to something better than you were originally aiming for? The future is far from assured. Now might be the only time you’ve got.

Skills come from experience. Skills come from doing. In order to create the skills you need to do the things you want to do, you have to first do the things you want to do in order to cultivate the skills you need. That sounds more complicated than it is. All you’ve got to do is just try. Experience and skill will grow as you do.

Money is not an either or option. You don’t have to choose your passion over money — you can choose both. Work on your idea on the side. Go part-time and work on it on the weekend. Take the time you have, and figure out how you can optimally squeeze out more quality in your hours.

Stop waiting.
