There is no perfect time...why are you waiting?

There is no perfect time.

Have you ever said, “I’ll do X once I get Y under control.” - or something along those lines? I know I have. Our minds trick us into putting off that scary thing that we kind of want to do, but are intimidated by, so we do what feels safe. We stay put.

Have you seen that diagram about the comfort zone and where the magic happens? Spoiler alert…the magic happens outside the comfort zone.

Waiting until everything is “perfect” before starting something means you will most likely be waiting for a very long time. Let’s be honest, there’s always something that’s making life a little crazy, right?

Look six months down the road. What do you see? Are you still waiting for the stars to align (aka the perfect time), or are you six months closer to where you want to be?

Take that first step outside of your comfort zone. Test the waters…how does it feel? Sure, it’s a little scary at first, but soon you will be asking yourself why you waited so long.  And before you know it, those new steps will become part of your new comfort zone.
