We or people we know have used the phrase “I’m waiting for the perfect time.” Waiting for the “perfect time” is a big myth. I’ll go you one better, it is an excuse. Now I’m not advocating knee jerk behavior, however I am advocating forward movement.
“The perfect time” is always in the now. Maybe that doesn’t mean start and completion but it does mean start and forward movement. Have you ever had an idea you did not act on, waiting for the perfect time, and then you see someone else has come up with it and move forward with it? They knew the perfect time was “now.”
Acting now is always the perfect time. Does it guarantee success, no, but it does guarantee growth. How many people have ‘failed’ when they acted? Tons, big deal, the majority of those so-called ‘failures’ paved the way for someone’s eventual success.
I believe Mark Victor Hansen nails it:
“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.” ~ Mark Victor Hansen
