Close your eyes and picture yourself at the finish line, whatever that may be for you. Now picture a scenario where you have every bit of information that you need to get to that finish your line.

Chances are, your finish line is a lot closer than you think.

Why Not Start Now?

At various points in the year, we often take time to reflect on where we are in our lives: what we’ve accomplished, what we didn’t get around to completing, and what has kept us from completing — or even starting — some of the projects that are important to us. It is this last area that deserves more of our reflection.

Why haven’t we finished our passion projects? Why haven’t we even started?

When it comes to the process of giving birth to an idea, the journey for every person is different. Some prefer to take the neater route, starting with research and working their way systematically through concept, design, test (and so on), eventually getting to launch.

While this may sound good to some, the neater route can often be a crutch and an obstacle to creating. What we think is a need to be thorough can actually be a fear of not being worthy.

But when is it enough? When can we say that we’ve read enough books, listened to enough podcasts, and watched enough TED talks? What happens when we accept that we have everything we need?

This is what happens — we start doing. And doing. And doing some more.

What we really need isn’t more information. What we need is what we already have: a vision and the tools to execute.

So let’s go make something already.
