What I have personally learned is that when you wait to do something, because of any logical reason you tell yourself, you’ll end up waiting and putting it off forever.
We want to be perfect. We want everything we do to be perfect. We expect to be an expert immediately, but as you know it, life just doesn’t work that way. Just start!
We do endless research on the project or subject before deciding you want to do it. Then you do more research on what you will need, and most of the time you can start with what you have. You don’t always need the best of the best to begin.
If you wait until you are ready, the chances are, you will never be ready. There will always be a story you tell yourself, an excuse you will make, maybe the fear of judgment getting in your way. There will always be something holding you back.
I’ve done some research on blogging for about a month, these things usually take me longer and I end up not doing the task. I have set myself a beginning date, but still, my excuses were holding me back. A week after I was supposed to begin, I finally began. I made a simple choice to make an account on whichever platform I found and started blogging, just like that, I began. (So happy that I found WordPress)
My blog is far from perfect, I don’t do everything that everyone says you are supposed to do, I am still finding the right blogging lengths, figuring out how to let go of the fear of judgment. At least I began, long before I was ready. Believe me, when I say, I felt no way near ready.
I was not at all ready. I continued anyway and I don’t regret it one little bit, for I know if I hadn’t made the choice of just beginning, I would never have begun and wouldn’t end up where I am right now.
I could write a book of all the things I ended up not doing because I wanted to be perfect because I had perfectionism as an excuse, my fear was an excuse. Waiting until you are ready, gets you nowhere. You are only stalling from the things that you can achieve.
Starting before you are ready lets you test the waters, it lets you gain experience and lessons that you couldn’t learn from anyone else.
I challenge you to find something you want to do and just do it! Go for it! Forget all the reasons why not and focus on the one reason why you should.
If you fail, then at least you’ve tried and learned some lessons which will help to armor you when you try again. We are supposed to fail, imagine a world full of only success without failure, will success even have value anymore? Everyone will be successful and no one would have to work for it. What a boring world.
So. Find something new. Start doing it before you are raedy. Take on this challenge.
