I first started thinking about starting my own blog about three years ago. But I didn’t think I was ready.
A little over a year ago (after spending about two years thinking about it), I finally sacked up and did it.
You know what changed in those two years? Absolutely nothing.
I still felt just as un-ready as I had two years earlier, but I finally realized that “not feeling ready” is just an excuse to put something off indefinitely.
There’s never a “right” time to start something.
The perfect time to start something is before you feel ready.
You either want to do something, or you don’t.
But you have to really want to do it.
If you just kind of want to do it, you’ll keep coming up with excuses to put it off.
You’ll keep telling yourself that you’ll start tomorrow.
You’ll keep telling yourself that you’re just not ready yet. Not today.
But I’m telling you now…
If you really, genuinely want do something, YOU ARE READY. TODAY.
No one knows exactly what they’re doing in the beginning. To be honest, I still don’t know what I’m doing with this blog half the time.
But guess what? Eventually I figure things out, one way or another.
Don’t worry about failing.
It’s OKAY to fail. If you hadn’t tried in the first place, you would’ve failed anyway.

So make up your mind. What do you want to do? What is it that you wanted to do today, but put off for tomorrow?
Whatever it is, start today. (Or the next time you see her.)
Don’t worry about the unknowns. The hardest part is getting started, so just focus on that. You’ll figure everything else out as you go.
