And it may make you hate me.
And you're going to say, this is nonsense and childish and foolish.
You're probably not going to follow it anyway.
But if you do, I'll give you my personal guarantee it will be the most intelligent decision you'll ever make.
Take your list of ideas you plan to do "someday".
Write each idea onto it's own Post-it note.
Stick each Post-it note on to your bedroom wall.
Ask your significant other to blindfold you.
Take a dart and throw it at your wall.
And whatever Post-it note your dart hits, that's what you do.
The problem with you is you're waiting for something that's never going to happen.
You're waiting for the right moment.
You're waiting for the right project.
You're waiting for the right set of conditions.
But you know that's not the way life works.
You will go further and faster by working on something rather than nothing.
You need to do something because doing nothing is just plain wrong.
Your answers will comes from taking action.
The number one secret that is the most difficult to understand is that it's never going to be right time to get started
Let me repeat this as difficult as it is to understand; you have to understand that it's never going to be right time to get started.
The time is never right.
It's never going to be the right time to get engaged.
It's never going to be the right time to get divorced.
It's never going to be the right time to quite your job.
It's never going to be the right time to . . .
Claim What's Yours.
So whatever your project is.
Whatever you want to do.
Or don't want to do any longer.
No matter how high on your list.
Get it started today.
Get failure out of the way.
