Day 2536 - When is the perfect time to start a project?

There is no PERFECT time.


At least once a week I get asked how I do all that I do.  At least once a week I get asked for advice on when to start a certain project or goal.  My answers are always the same:

  1.  I just do it and 
  2. The best time is NOW!




There is no perfect time for the big things in life.  Perfection is a fairy tale.  The only way to move forward is to actually take a step.

Today I chatted with some colleagues about my next project.  Sure I am nervous. Sure I wonder how I'm going to do it. Sure I am wondering if it will take off.  Sure I'm wondering if I've got what it takes. But I can sit in my comfort zone and never give it a go, or I can look back in two years time and see that somebody else did it before me and forever wonder "what if".

No regrets.

If you've got a goal, a dream or a vision, then take the step.  Get out of your comfort zone and make the first step.

Today! 

Just Do It! 

Now is the time.

  1. I love this and I'm getting closer to maybe doing a FB live video or a vlog for the blog or something. Maybe not a regular thing, but the cogs are starting to turn!

    And yes, I've constantly waited... and look at me... 48 and still single and childless! Gah!

  4. That "Perfection is a fairy tale" quote was one of my favourites from PB. I think it's something that we have all known for some time but that pesky thing called fear kept getting in the way. There's nothing like hearing it from someone or reading it in a blog post like this one to provide a good kick up the ass to actually go out there and do what we're afraid of (I have a long to do list from PB so now is the time!) xx

  5. Very good advice! I hope your next project goes well! Starting is always scary but things tend to fall into place once we take the first step!

    Hope you're having a great weekend :)

  8. Love this - and so true. There's also the wisdom that says if you get asked to do something that you don't know how to do, do it anyway and learn along the way. Looking forward to seeing what your next project is, I'm sure it'll be fab. Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo x
