Into action

Start where you are.

Use what you have.

Do what you can.

From a random Reddit post meme.

There is no perfect time to start. There is no point at which you will be better prepared. If you start now, by the end of the day, you will be in a better position than you were in the morning.

You make forward progress. You build action muscle. You have better judgment and perspective–the 3D effect of now occupying a different point than you did earlier.

“I need to learn something before I can start.” No. You learn because you start. You will waste time and learn the wrong things with study prior to action.

“I don’t have the right tools or supplies.” That’s ok. Your progress will accelerate when you have better tools. And you won’t know which tools are really suitable until you start. Grab what you can. Make your best guess about what to use. Start.

“I need someone to help me.” Remember the old saying “When the student is ready, the master appears” and start. The helpers are already there. You can’t see them because you aren’t there to see your helpers. Start. Put yourself on the field where the players already stand, waiting for you.

Most important: by starting you show your own brain, by action, that you are an action person. Then your brain comes to believe you are an action person and stops with the feeble excuses that keep you mired where you are right now.

Into action.
