The timing is never right

I was talking to a good friend and he said he was “very close” to starting his blog, getting more involved in Twitter and really developing his personal brand online. “As soon as I get some downtime”, he said.

Unfortunately, the downtime never comes.

When was the last time you crossed off the last item on your to-do list?

Have you been putting something off? Starting that addition to the house? Quitting your job to freelance? Writing the great American novel? Starting a blog? Taking dance lessons? Learning Chinese?

As Tim Ferris says,

“the stars will never align and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn’t conspire against you, but it doesn’t go out of its way to line up all the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. “Someday” is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If it’s important to you and you want to do it ‘eventually’, just do it and correct course along the way.”

  1. Hey Buddy,
    The last 6 posts or so have been really good. I love the gum analogy, I really like the pricing by experience one as well. The experience from bloggin everyday has really helped you fine-tune your voice and has added a ton of value to your posts.

    Keep up the great work!
