Waiting to be discovered: No one gets discovered. They discover themselves. If you want to do something, start doing it. You can grow old waiting. Until you are good enough: See waiting until you believe you are ready. Until the time is right: When the time is right, you need to already be doing what you want to do when opportunity presents itself. In fact, that’s the only way that opportunity shows up. Haters: Not everyone is going to like you. Not everyone is going to appreciate what you do or how you do it. Time spent thinking or worrying about what other people think is time away from your mission. Shortcuts: Shortcuts are the way to prevent mastery. Hacking is an avoidance of the fundamentals. When it comes to the deep truths, principles, things that matter, you don’t have time not to do the work. People who do not value you: You are not for everyone. Some people won’t appreciate you, what you do, how you do it, or why you do it. They are not for you. Second time with the people who value you. Doing work over: Mistakes are inevitable. Iteration is part of the growth and development. That said, you should still do your best work so that you don’t have to go back over ground you have already covered unnecessarily. Until you are older: What you want in the future you need to create now. Until you are certified: You don’t need anyone’s permission to live your purpose. You don’t need the certificate, the degree, or anyone’s permission. Until you are certain: Maybe it will work as planned. Maybe it won’t. If you are waiting until you are certain, that fear will paralyze you and steal your time. Whatever you are going to do, know that it can and will be improved. Perfection: Is unattainable. There is no reason to make this the prerequisite for producing, nor is there any reason to make that your measurement as it pertains to creating.
You have a limited amount of time. Get busy and make it count.
