When is the WORST time to start?
Want to know the perfect time and set-up you will need to get started? Or when is the worst time to start your new business? In fact, when is the worst time to start anything you have been putting off for ages?
Well, I know the WORST place to start is tomorrow. And that is because there is always a tomorrow.
To help to picture this scenario better, I would like to tell you a quick story about a well-known writer.
After he had become quite successful, a lot of his wealthy friends started inviting him to their beautiful homes and glamorous places in the world.
All in hopes to find inspiration and creativity, so he could get writing done from these exotic locations.
Yet, this rarely happened. There were always distractions. Always so many things to do. Always the “allure” of a better time and place to focus and get work done.
Yet, his writer’s procrastinating habits, they tagged along everywhere he went. Another time (tomorrow), another place, wasn’t helping anything at all.
So, here’s the big lesson …
We tell ourselves we need the perfect time, the perfect place, the perfect setting before we finally will buckle down, get serious, and start. Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow…
Got to get the right chair, or computer, or ideal time first…
It is better to be adaptable. Better to be able to do what we need to do, anywhere, anytime. Better to just start. Here and now.
Remember, the perfect time to start (now) will never “feel” like the perfect time to start. And that’s why so few people do it. Just saying 🙂
