If you’re telling yourself that you’ll act when you’re ready, you’ll be waiting forever.
There’s no perfectly convenient time to get out of your joy-crushing situation. If you keep waiting for the time when you’ll be really ready, you’ll remain stuck.
Perhaps you’re worried that you don’t have every potential contingency figured out. While it’s essential to plan and anticipate everything that can go wrong, excessive overthinking can lull you into procrastination.
However, some times are better than others. Instead of wanting to be 100% ready, go for 100% invested. That means you need to be:
- 100% determined
- 100% disciplined
- 100% persistent
As long as you maintain these three things, you’re probably more ready than you think.
